Hi!!!  I hope everybody is fine.  My kids are sick and now I'm too!  Grrr...very difficult for me to make a page when I don't feel well, it takes me a long time to be inspired with something.  This week's Color Combo Galore has this lovely striking color palette and this inspirational photo that was my inspiration.  I was focused in those shelves and I used the lid of a white jewelry box like my frame and tie with the twine.
This is my page........
I have this photo from a vacation we did a few years ago and Paola is wearing this shirt that the colors fits perfect with this color palette and at the same time she has this orange tan, lol! she has a very white skin and every time she took a little of sun she looks like a shrimp or a red apple.  If you follow my blog you know that I love w/b photos but this one goes perfect with the colors.
This is my frame that really is a lid of a jewelry box.
I used two Martha Stewart's paper punches for my circles edges.   The pattern papers are from Basic Grey, Karen Foster, and Webster Pages.
These beautiful butterflies are from Kay's shop.
Well my blogger friends thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments, I really appreciated it!
You have until next Wednesday to play in Color Combo Galore go ...HERE
Until next time...Take Care!!!
With Love!
