Bright and Cheery for Brazil

This has gotta be one of my most favorite color palettes ever!  Oh the greens, the greens...  and of course, the dusty pink, but I didn't do a good enough job matching to that shade of pink, but who cares, I love this palette, the sketch, and my layout!!!

This palette was featured in a Brazilian e-zine Scrapzine. The Color Room artists and the magazine editors all contributed to the issue.  I am on page 8, yay!  That was a lot of fun!  Now that we've been to Russia and Brazil, where to next? :)  Creating Keepsakes did do a half page feature of the Color Room in their October 2010 issue.  We didn't get to contribute layouts to that though, oh well :)

Second Child has such a personality!  She is that much more mischievous than her sister, and yet her sister is the outgoing one! 
Here is a close-up of the Fancy Pants chipboard swirls!  I have been steadily using those up recently.  I covered it with the most delicious paper from MME Quite Contrary. I will miss these amazing chipboards but I must say that hoarding, in this case, really "paid off" :)
