color combos galore: love, always

it's the 22nd, which means there is a new challenge at color combos galore today.

i love love love these challenges!  it's so fun to have a color inspiration board, as well as layout inspiration ideas.  the colors for this challenge were great!  and for some reason, i knew exactly what i wanted to do as soon as i saw the inspiration board.  that's pretty unlike me....i usually print it out and leave it on my desk for a few days until an idea comes to mind.  sometimes it takes fooooorever for me to commit to something, but not this time!  

here is the inspiration board "love, always" for this challenge

the reds popped right out at me so i knew i wanted my reds to do the same....

and here is my layout for this challenge...

Main Inspiration: Focus on Trend (clothes pinned photos)
Other Inspiration:
Photo #4: Focus on Photography (blurred background)
Photo #2: Focus on Design (repetition of hearts on background; repetition of layered photos)
Photo#4: Focus on Photography (heart on picture inspired heart background)

i love this picture of my two cuties.  and i love the "me+you=family" card from crate paper.  the hearts background is a cut file from envisages and can be found here.  i made it a little smaller so it would fit behind my photo and papers.  i love how this layout turned out!  

be sure to hop on over to color combos galore and check out the challenge, as well as the amazing inspiration from the design team.

if you aren't already a member, shoot me an email and i will send you an invite!  it's a great challenge and i'd love for you to play along!!  

happy monday, everyone!
