I don't really know why I picked these photos to scrap for this week's ColourQ challenge. I think it might be, at this point mid-summer, I start to LONG for the First Day of School to arrive! ;) The kids are fighting, it's so hot, we have been to the pool/gone to the movies/seen the zoo/gotten together with friends, etc. more times than I can count. And, I miss my blog! There is just SO little time for projects and blogging in the summer months.... usually the only time I can find is after the household has gone to bed, and then I have to sacrifice my precious sleep! Trust me, it's a cruel choice to make.... sleep or crafting? Since both are as dear to me as the air I breathe! ;) heehee.... well, anyway, here's the cool, modern palette for this weeks ColourQ. Love it!
I have really preferred using sketches to scrapbook with lately. Keeps my pages from getting boring, that's for sure. I had pinned this sketch to my Pinterest Inspiration Board, and that's what I used for the LH page in my spread.
Here's my pages.....
I wanted to use those old cork letters on this page SO bad, I actually had to fashion the "H" from some other letters! Do you see the seam? That's a great way to get the most out of your letter stickers. Can't tell you how many letters I've "built" through the years from necessity! ;)
I used some buttons where the little dots are on the sketch, found some sticker photo corners for that element. I used my old-school labelmaker for the journaling.
On the RH page, I simply taped down my photos, and created a border strip with some DPs in the right colors. A quick companion page.
Well, I hope you will come play at the ColourQ this week! What might you do with these colors! Pop back in on Thursday, I've got a cute card scheduled to go live then.
