TPE Scrapbook Challenge Saturday

Good Morning!  It's Saturday and I am so hoping that my day will be filled with more crafting.  I do have to run a few errands, but basically, I want to spend the day in my craft room playing with my stamps.

The challenge is up at The Pink Elephant and I am loving my page.  However, if anyone has some tips on how to best photograph a 12x12 page, please leave them in the comments.  Anyway, the challenge this week is a color combo....


These colors reminded of a couple of pictures I took of my mother last year.  She looked so cute!


The colors were a perfect fit to a scrapbook kit that I've had for years.  I've been hoarding it much as possible, but I've used it, too and now I'm sad because now it's nearly gone.  Now I followed a picture of another challenge blog - they didn't have a sketch, so I interpreted as best as I could.  Kaisercraft had a beautiful inspiration photo.
