I love using sketches and color challenges to create my layouts. I host two each month but I also enjoy playing around with other challenges. Let's face it, I create more than two scrapbook layouts a month and the inspiration helps.
Today I am playing along with the Sketch from The Paper Bakery and the color challenge from Color Me Scrappy. I love combining two challenges. The sketch caught my eye because I love arrows on a page. The colors worked well with the beach theme.
One more thing: I created my own "chipboard" letters for the word LIFE. Using a hot cocoa box and the patterned paper, I cut out the letters twice and adhered the paper letters to the cardboard ones. It makes them pop off the page a little and gives the title more depth [just like the chipboard arrows - which I sanded a little].
Happy Memorial Day Weekend,
