ScrapFriends Colour Palette Challenge #5

Hi everyone,

ScrapFriends has just released their new Colour Palette Challenge - #5. Here it is:

I admit when I first received this palette, I was really nervous as this was my first stint as a guest designer,  and the colours aren't ones I would normally use. I think it was the light blue in the mix that had me stumped a bit. It took me a while to get the courage to start, and  this is what I eventually came up with:

And some close-ups:

Materials used: Paper: Basic Grey, Echo Park, DCWV, Prima, American Crafts, Making Memories, Grace Taylor; Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug; Washi Tape; Kaiser chipboard; Prima flower; Muslin(gauze); Die-cuts: Tim Holtz, Magnolia Ink; Punches: Ek Success, Punch Bunch; liquid pearsl; Mister Huey's color mists.

So I hope you don't feel intimidated by this colour challenge and give it a go. You have ample time to enter as it ends Oct 14.  For inspiration visit the site here, where the designers have all done such gorgeous layouts with this challenge seems I was the only one out of my comfort zone!

Thanks for stopping by.  I look forward to seeing your layouts.
Have a great day.


  1. Hey! I hear ya when you talk about being out of the comfort zone. I had the same feeling with some of the colors... Orange and Green??? lol I thought how on earth am I going to do something with those.. but thankfully you didn't have to use them ALL, as that was clarified when I emailed them about the colors lol I was quite happy when I found the perfect green color and how it worked out even if I"m not thrilled with the color. I have the color comfort too. When I scrap a color that I love.. it turns out pretty good.. But boy give me dark brown, Green, yellow, orange or Red, and I'm stumped. Give me a male layout and I'm completely out of my comfort zone... actually so far out I'm down 3 blocks to the left!! LMBO!! I know I need to work on the male layouts to get over that, but I dread doing them, but scrapping is suppose to be fun.
    Thanks a bunch for stopping by and leaving a comment on my color layout. Congrats for winning last month, and congrats on your first design team layout.. you did great with the colors!
