Webster's June Challenge

I had wanted to do the June traditional challenge over at Webster's Pages, but didn't have but 2 pieces of the Yacht Club paper!!! I had some of the embellies but only 2 sheets of the paper. I did have the Fabric Tickets, so I decided to try it These are also store samples for EMI. I have these 2 pages, I'm not sure which one to enter, but I'm thinking the first one.

On this one I just drew the fireworks and added stickles to them!

Everybody that knows me knows that I totally love Websters and I'm excited to see the new collections too!

The Color Room Palette #62

got to play with the palette at TheColorRoom this week. This one is a bit different for me. I usually gravitate toward the frilly, lacy, floral type pages. I realized that I didn't have much paper in these colors. I had to pull out some older paper and mix some old elements also! And it's a boy page! So I added stars and buttons and I did have to put a couple of blooms. The hibicus are some that I cut by hand, didn't turn out quite like I had planned!!! I used the sketch as a starting point, but I used one photo instead of the three. This definitely stretched my creativity. Thanks for the push!!! Please go and check out all the inspiration at www.thecolorroom.ning.com
