Color Throwdown 123

Thursday, January 6, 2011

I think I've been in a very springy mood lately.  I assume that's why I've been so intrigued with a bunch of color challenges lately that feature bright colors that remind me of warm weather to come.  This week's Color Throwdown challenge was no exception.  Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze and Cameo Coral - what a combo!

For my clean and simple layout I turned to the FLT55 layout from August 2009.  I have long been an advocate of keeping a library of sketches for inspiration.  Luckily some of the sketch challenge blogs that I visit publish a .pdf of their sketch challenges and I dutifully print them out and keep them in a binder.  That way, I've got some inspiration on hand when I need it.  I can't tell you how many times I've used them when I needed a nudge in the right direction.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

As soon as the first snow flies, we start thinking of spring, don't we all?! {grins}

I just realized you're nearby where I used to live - I hail from Boston and later Franklin MA, now in Flint MI area! It's a small world, eh?!

This is very pretty and could be used for all sorts of occasions. When I need a kick-start, another look through the Ideas Book and Catalogue never fails to set me off!
