This week the Color Combo Galore presents a monochromatic palette so this was a real challenge for me, if you followed my blog you know that I love colors, yes, bright colors but I tried it and I had a lot of fun!!
In addition to the color combo is the designer's challenge as inspired by the photo. You should use wood, a tittle in capital letters, a striped element, a transparency and create the effect of a ledge.  And this was my inspiration.....

I made this page about my hubby, I think this color combo is perfect for masculine pages.   I used wood in Kaiser Craft's Wooden Flourishes that I painted with gray and black colors.   I made ,or tried to make, the ledge with the  corrugated band that is my striped element, the transparency is for Maya Road and my tittle with caps...all done!!

More details.....

If you like to see more examples go to  Color Combo Galore and see what beauties the Design Team made, we would like to see what you can do!!!
Well girls thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments, I love read It!
Take Care!!!
Hugs and Love,

Hi my blogger friends!!!  How are you doing?  This is my second post today, you can see the first one at the end of this post.  I'm off  from "Blog land" these days. I couldn't visit some of my friend's blogs.  The hurricane Irene swept our island last Sunday and I was without power service until yesterday.  A lot of people continue without basic services here, the worst part of the hurricane was the rains and the floods, many people lost everything but we're fine.
I'm going to show you two of my last works for The Color Combo Galore.  This first one is for the CCG-205, I really love this color combo and the Designer challenge, when I saw the inspirational photo I remembered that I got this photo from July,25 ...and this was my inspiration.....

Hola mis amigas blogeras!!  Como han estado?  Yo estoy bien desconectada de "Blod land" estos días.  No he podido visitar los blogs de mis amigas.   El huracán Irene visito nuestra isla el pasado domingo y estuve sin servicio de electricidad hasta el otro día.  Todavía hay mucha gente aquí sin los servicios básicos, la peor parte del huracán fueron las lluvias e inundaciones muchas personas perdieron sus pertenencias pero estamos bien GAD.
Les voy a ensenar dos de mis últimos trabajos para Color Combo Galore.
Esta primera pagina es para CCG205, realmente me encanto estos colores y el reto del diseñador, cuando vi la foto de inspiración me recordé de esta foto que tomaron el pasado 25 de Julio...y así me inspire.....
For the Designer challenge you should use a mesh or woven material so I made my mesh with cardstock and patttern paper.  I added  the teal color with paint and with the rub-ons. I painted the dressform that is from Maya road and my sweet friend Mary gave it to me. 
My cousin took me this picture in our Family Day last July 25.  The flowers are from Prima.
Details of the tittle.

This is my page for CCG 204 and I love the inspirational photos bring me peace, calm and makes me feel relax.   I looked these photos from my anniversary trip that are perfect for this challenge.  For the Designer challenge you should made a grid design, well I made it  with my photos.
I love the deck in the inspirational photo so I used a corrugated for my background that I painted in brown color.

I got the corals, shells, sea glass  and rocks from the beach.  The starfish are from BoBunny papers.  I liked to give the look of sea grass so I cut some cardstock strips.  Rub-ons and the tittle are from K & Company.

More details......

Well girls, thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments!!
Until next time!  Take Care!!!
