I found another colour challenge blog.

It's called Color Combos Galore.  It is set up very similar to the Color Room I showed you last month but instead of a sketch this one has an inspiration challenge.  Here is last weeks challenge combo and inspiration.
I love pink and green together so I had to play along.  I started with a white sheet of Bazzill cardstock and used my mask letters for the title.  You could place chipboard or even paper alphas you had cut out yourself for the title.  Just lay it down and spray with Glimmer Mist.  I also used the backing from a Prima felt border  to create a border along the lower part of my page.

I planned on putting an acrylic sheet with green butterflies over my background (you can see it below) so I roughly sketched where the butterflies weren't so I had a place for my journaling.

Once I had my journaling all written out I adhered my acrylic butterfly sheet (by Hambly Screen Prints) down to my background and began building my matting and other embellishments for my layout.

And here is the finished layout. The doily was one I inherited from my Grandma.  It had a 17c price tag on it, from Woolworths.

I love the acrylic overlays.  Unforgettable Memories has a variety of designs.  Make sure you ask about them the next time you're in the store.
The pretty flower spray is by Prima.  There are few colours in the store.  This pink spray was packaged with a purple spray.  I can't wait to use it on a layout.  They are so sweet.
The buttons are Jenni Bowlin.  There must be half a dozen colours in the store.  I've used the green ones on a few layouts recently.
I used 3 different border punches on my papers.  I think the border punches are the best value for the money when it comes to scrapbooking tools.  I use mine over and over. I never get tired of them.
