My Baby Shower (Color Me Scrappy)

Hello, yes this is my second post for today, although here in New Zealand it is 11.05pm!  My blog has been a bit quiet this week due to the end of our broad band being used up by my son downloading a game, but its actually been a blessing as I've been getting some creative time in around feeding my newborn.

I recently discovered a challenge blog called Color Me Scrappy, which is predominantly colour inspiration challenges with an added fun twist!  I decided to play along with one of their recent challenges as I adored the colour scheme.

Here is my layout, which is about the surprise baby shower that my dear friend Wendy threw for me.  The photo is of me cutting into the beautiful and delicious cake she made, and this was 9 days before Brielle was born.  

The twist with this challenge was that in addition to the colour scheme, we had a word challenge with the word NEW, with an item for each letter.  My items are:

  • N - Notebook edge (on the journaling card)
  • E - Ephemera
  • W - Washi Tape
I mixed a range of older collections and bits and pieces from my stash on this layout. 

Some close ups:

Lots of yummy layers:

And here is the delicious colour scheme:

And for the first time ever I'm linking up with The Memory Nest Crafty Creations No. 17.  Leslie of The Memory Nest is lovely, and I've been meaning to join in on her challenges for some time now!

Thanks for looking, I had a blast creating this layout!
