First Instagram Photo (color challenge)

One of my favorite scrapbookers, Shimelle Laine, had a fun scrapbook challenge weekend on her blog two weekends ago. Since everyone had a week to work on the challenges, I figured I could still fit one in this weekend!
I chose Challenge #4 - Color Adventure which was to scrapbook with yellow, gray and one other color.
Since I wanted to do a layout using my first Instagram photo that had purple and yellow flowers, I chose purple as my third color.
Another reason I decided to join in the challenge, was this fun, yellow chevron patterned paper from the new Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection by American Crafts. I got it with this particular photo in mind, and then thought of the challenge. So it worked out well :)

You can see touches of purple with the mist droplets, purple and white star flair, Making Memories mini stickers using the purple letters, purple ink around the edges of my tag and the purple butterfly. I love purple, but don't scrap with it to often. Or yellow for that matter. But have to say, I am enjoying those two colors more and more. And gray is becoming one of my favorite neutrals.

So now I have another fun layout to go in my personal "All About Me" album. Along with this older one...
Little quirky things my kids might find interesting someday. You never know :)
I'll be back with another layout on Wednesday.
It's based on this blog post from not too long ago.
See you then!

  12. Loving the colors in your first layout! So pretty together. Also the subject matter of your second layout? Super cool ;) I saved the same little tag off of Landry's Converse the other day thinking it would be fun in an album. Ha!

  13. I love colors in your first layout, that chevron paper is awesome and really makes the yellow flower in your picture pop!

    Also, pink low tops?! Awesome!!! I've got them too! Although they probably need a little trip to the washing machine, I've had them since high school :)

  20. These are both fun pages! Love the photo of your shoes - it's a unique perspective! And I downloaded instagram for my phone but I've never used it. I haven't signed up for the community yet, so it won't let me do anything. The last thing I need is to have another online community to go to where I will waste time looking at everyones cool photos. I don't have the time, so I'll just drool over everyone else's instagram goodness. :)
