Scrappy Monday, y'all! Actually I typed this post up Sunday night because this morning we're taking the hubs to the hopsickle for a pre-op appointment--he has back surgery on Wednesday. He's in so much pain from his sciatic nerve that Wednesday can't get here fast enough. I hope that surgery does the trick and he feels a lot better really fast. I hate seeing him in pain.
Buuuuut you're not here for the not-happy stuff, you're here for a scrapbook layout! Actually I have two for you today.
You might be able to tell from the lettering template if you've been around here for a while, these pages are from our 2010 China trip. (See the pictures here.)
Yep, I use the same lettering template on all the China layouts, and accent with Rough Type. Sometimes I only use one or the other, but most often it's a combination.
And there's the second one. I don't know why I associate dragonflies with Oriental stuff? But apparently I do.
Let's talk color! Today's color palette is Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink, and Whisper White. Y'all, this is my FAVORITE NEW COLOR COMBINATION ever since I saw it in the SU! catty this summer. I don't know why but I am in luuuurve with it. Well, Tranquil Tide is actually my favorite new In Color, I love how it plays nice with pretty much every other color I've put it with and I need to play with it more often. And guess what...
Just Add Ink. Technically I made these layouts several weeks ago, so I won't enter them in the challenge, but last night I managed to sneak in a wee bit of stampy time and I made something new for this color challenge that I'll share tomorrow. Because, as I said, I'm totally in love with it. A LOT.
Until then, peace out yo!
