My Boy

This is a 8 x 8 layout I make for MY BOY
and it is based on the color palette over at



I have to admit that I am not good at color challenges, but it is a good way to push myself get out of my comfort zone, using colors that I normally don't.


This blue DP from American Crafts had some really cute whales (embossed) all over, too bad that the picture can't really show


After doing so many 12 x 12 pages, 8 x 8 seems a lot easier as it has less space to filled, LOL!


Alright, you still have time to hop over to COLOUR Q and join in the fun!

Masculine LO's and cards are sometimes difficult to create and this LO turned out great. CAS are great for masculine "projects". I love this; you did a terrific job with the colors!

HI Kirsty, I went to the post office and came back and you had posted this! This is very nice. I love how you used the colors. Sometimes the colors are more difficult to use, but the more you use different color combo's the more relaxed you feel! I am glad to see you back again exploring the possibilities in the world of colors! thanks for playing the ColourQ challenge again this week!
