Wombat by Alexandra Boehnke

I really love this amazing color palette. My husband got two little wombats for his birthday and created an amazing little photo adventure for them. For the introducing page he took a pic of the little one. I grabbed a copy of the picture. It was so cute!

At first I looked for matching colors and stuff from my scrapbooking material. I had several paper scraps and a new overlay for KI Memories – with some color spots – this was my idea for this challenge. These are my supplies:

For my background I used the overlay and white cardstock. I marked the big stars with a pencil.

Here you can see all the marked stars:

Now I colored all the stars with water colors. Use the colors with lots of water for a great effect.

I put the overlay on the cardstock and spattered some drops on it. I added also some pencil scribbles on the background.

I added some paper stripes and punched stars around the layout and the cute picture.

I created the title with some alpha stickers and wrote the journaling with my favorite pen from Copic.

And it is complete! Here is the finished layout and some detail pics.

Happy scrapping,

Challenge #60

Ah, Spring ... we've been anxiously awaiting your return.   Those of us in the Mid-West, East Coast, most of the United States and Canada are EXTREMELY ready for warmer weather.   Mother Nature keeps teasing us by giving us little tastes of the good life, and then takes it away with more cold and snow.   Seriously, we're OVER it!  We hope this bright, fun palette inspires your inner Spring Goddess and you decide to play along! 

This month we've got a guest designer, please 
give her a warm welcome:

 Here's how our AMAZING Design Team 
used this color combo:

For our 'Tip of the Month' we've got a video by Valerie showing us how to color clear crystals to match our paper and layouts.     I know there are times that I end up not using any rhinestones or bling because they don't quite match the page I'm working on, so this will be another way for me to use my stash!

Hope you enjoy this tip and happy scrappin'

Memories of a Fearless Tree Hugger - by Debi Clark

I just loved these colours from when I saw them, they gave me a ‘sunny & happy’ feel.
So I choose this photo of my 7 year old grandson Harry, to work with this palette -
he is such a dear lad & rather a wag too!

Found this little paper bag so added a journaling card, with my story tucked into it.

Hope you liked this simple layout that I loved working on.
Thank you much for visiting us here at Color Me Scrappy and do join in our challenges!

Challenge #59

Well, it finally feels like Spring has sprung in the Great White North. I can see grass in my yard and we are finally able to see our fire pit. I can't wait to get out there and use it.

When Spring hits, that usually means the amount of scrappy free time goes down... everyone want to be outside getting some fresh air. I'm sure I will be out there with the rest of them trying to soak up some of the sun, but that is why I went on a crop this weekend. I'm currently working on a couple different albums and really wanted to get them finished. Can you believe I managed 30 pages over the weekend? Figured I averaged about a page an hour. Phew! That's a lot!  Let's see what you can create with our newest challenge.

Check out the prize for April! It's a beautiful kit I put together with all you need to create 3 or 4 pages... tons of embellies, stickers, and paper.

Moving onto the challenge this time, it's a bit different than last month. We hope you enjoy this color scheme.

We have some new guest designers this month too. Check out what they created with the colors. Be sure to stop by their blogs to give them some love.




Thank you so much for taking the time to join our team.  

And as always, there is some great work by our fabulous Design Team.  They provide so much inspiration each and every challenge! I'm so happy to have them on this team.  You ladies are amazing!

I've had some feed back regarding the posts and some have said that they are getting too long.  Debi Clark has created a tutorial on how she made her page and we will be posting that tomorrow, so be sure to check back for that!
