Put on Shades!

Because we have a gloriously bright palette for you!  If you are like me and said "whoa, my eyes, my eyes..." just check out the Color Room DT inspiration here, I'm seriously blown away! 

I started this layout late last night and it came together so quickly thanks to Lydell's sketch!  The background is a 2007 Me and My Big Ideas paper, perfect for the palette no?  Jump for joy on stash reduction! Yay yay yay!  Furthermore, I have so many printed photos from that one day in June 2009 when we visited the Sculpture Garden, this layout also serves as a photo reduction for me :) 
GCD butterflies with a button and a JBS butterfly pin.  Oh some seriously fun products to use! Well, that's really it from me. Since I'm in serious lack of materials on this post, I will tell you a joke my First Born told me.
Question: How does an alien count to 23?
Answer: One finger at a time!
FUNNY girl :)

Hi JJ. Thank you for your comment on my blog today. I always comment back to people but I thought I'd come here and leave a comment :)
for my photos, I use "photoscape" sofrware http://www.photoscape.org/ps/main/index.php

to edit. you can do a lot of things and easy to use. I like it. My husband bought me a good camera 2 years ago and since then I've been loving taking photos.

anyway, as I commented on TCR, I LOVE this LO. the use of patterned paper is just fablous!! I am getting inspiration here!

She is a funny girl. Here's one my seven year old came up with: Why are there bones on the moon? Because the cow didn't make it. Your layout is lovely, and bright!

Colette Bate said...

Whoa! Bright is RIGHT! But, brilliant as ever! You've NAILED this palette! And, in record time, too, huh?

A little less stash .. a little less in the photo stash .. and a whole lotta inspiration!
