Color Combos Galore & ABC's Monthly Challenge

I'm a little late on the ABC's Monthly Challenge over at Colorful Creations,we had to use the letter E and scrap about ourselves.  I have used E in the word Entertaining and the picture is of me when I was a kid, I was forever amusing myself in the backyard, dragging out blankets and covering the clothes airier so that it was like a cubby.  Not much room under there but I would squeeze myself in and try get the dogs in as well, no video games for me!!!

I did a 9" page, I don't know why I don't do more this size so much quicker than the 12" ones I think I could churn out a couple of these a day, and with that in mind I am going to do my ABC album in this size, wish I had thought of this earlier.  The colours over at Color Combos Galore really caught my eye and I took the opportunity to combine the colours with the challenge.

Out of all the colours in this Palette the Framed French Blue was a little tricky, this was my 2nd attempt ast the colours, the first when photographed turned the green  into more of a blue tone.  Back to the drawing board and ended up pulling some of the prints from a K & Company specialty paper pack "Madeline"range.

  I have a hidden tag behind the photo with my journaling.


I used the Serene Green in the rolled flowers and my title. 

 Framed French Blue as I said was the real tricky colour and you can see the butterflies have photographed more of a blue, I decided to leave as I had already glue down.
