|COLOR COMBO GALORE|
Hello!!! I hope everyone is fine! I'm so happy because I'm going to take two weeks off from work, yesss! I really need it! This is a long holiday weekend here, we're celebrating Labor Day this next Monday. For that reason, I will show you three pages in this post, I'm going on a trip with my family around the island. This month's theme in Color Combo Galore is all about books and reading. This week's Designer challenge: Focus on Type-Dictionary or Text type prints and an unusual but lovely color combo, I really love these challenges!!!!
And this was my inspiration.....
|I rolled the stripes of printed text pattern papers, then I distressed them with Vintage Photo. I painted the wooden sticks. I tie the rolled stripes with the wooden sticks and made this big mat.|
I would like to see what you can create with this 207 CCG, you can see what beauties the Design Team made here....http://colorcombosgalore.ning.com/forum/topics/color-combo-challenge-207

It's time to show some Salt & Pepper on your layout or card! This means that black and white are your main colors but you can use only one more color. I'm making a b/w and coral colors wedding album for my sister- in- law and brother, so this goes perfect for it! I used the sketch from My Creative Sketches Blog. This is a new sketch monthly challenge blog, you can see it ....(HERE)
|I used some tulle, prima flowers, charms, CTMH chipboard, American craft alphas and some stuff from my kit from My Creative Scrapbook.|

THE (PAPER) TRAIL MAKERS
Karen the owner of Paper Trail store asked us, the Design Team, to make a page or card with a bit of vintage thrown in! The vintage can be in the papers, in the colors, ephemera, in the photos, etc... I made this page when my little sister was celebrating her 4th birthday. My mom had this picture and i'd like to work with it. I'm the middle one at right side, my sister is the little one at front of mine and we are in the photo with our neighbor Martita. Lovely memory!!!
|I used for this page the lovely line "It's the little things" from Fancy Pants. Do you love Dusty Attic?...well you can find it at the store!!
