Colour Me Monday

I really loved the colour combination from Jeannette Lynton's blog this Monday (Cocoa, Crystal Blue, Garden Green, Hollyhock), so I knew I wanted to do something with it. I recently found these photos from seven and a half years ago, and the sky is a perfect match for Crystal Blue. Voila, another layout is born! Fancy going 4x4ing up a mountain when you're 8 months pregnant! As I was writing the journaling for this page, I realized that I'm at a sort of parallel time in my life right now - I'm 7 months pregnant, and we're about to buy a new vehicle, for safety but also to fit a third child! We may be saying goodbye to this trusty old Suzuki XL-7 as soon as next week.

Supplies (all CTMH): Garden Green and Cocoa cardstock, patterned paper from Boom-Di-Ada and Notebook Level 2 paper packets, Exclusive Inks stamp pad in Cocoa, Exclusive Inks marker in Cocoa, sticker from Notebook Level 2 My Stickease, My Acrylix Key to My Heart stamp set

Other: ribbon, staples, journaling spot from Prima

So this is 5 down, 115 to go for the 2010 Layout Challenge!

  1. I totally love it - I love how you used the Notebook sticker, I have been wanting to use it, and didn't know how. Thanks!

  2. Love the colour combo. Great photos! Good luck with the new vehicle purchase!

  3. I like how the blue paper seems to pop off the page. Wonderful job!
