Colour Palette 8 - Colorful Creations

 Hi Everyone

Well another month has been and gone and it seems true what they say "Time just flies by" just as I think I'm in front of my challenges I realise I've forgotten one and end up rushing around like a mad women, I'm sure you can all

I know a lot of people from the USA have had to deal with Hurricane Storm Sandy it only seems like yesterday when we had the same clean up here in Queensland, my heart goes out to those that now have the long process of getting their lives back to some kind of normality as they clean up such a huge mess.

I think that is why I was drawn to the image I have selected for this months colour challenge,both the image and the colours were so dramatic looking and after little tweeking I loved the 5 colours that I came up with,.  If you would like to check them out please drop by Colorful Creations here and check the palette out.


I have been wanting to scrap this photo for ages a friend and I attended a Scrap Retreat and Saturday night was dress up night, not sure who's wig that was but I decided it really didn't suit my complexion.  However it was a fun night.

 I have really dug into the patterned paper archives here, as most of you know I love challenging myself to using several different companies collections rather than just one that has been co-ordinated.  Here I have used Basic Grey "Fusion" & Äged & Confused" Alpha Berry, Sassafrasslass "Life Is Beautiful", Daisy D's "Chloe Marie" & Pink Paislee.   

For those who haven't been scrapping for longer than 4 years you may never have even seen these before and those who have check through you stash time to get them used.

I love this new addition to my masks I think its called Bingo Ticket, I threw the packet out so I'm not a hundred percent, I then spritzed with some glimmer mist.
