The Color Room Blog Hop

Welcome to the first annual Color Room blog hop!  If you just arrived here from Jennifer's blog, you are hopping right along then! Otherwise, you can start at the beginning here.  There is a prize drawing for the blog hoppers who complete the hop and commet on all the designer's blog.

For our 50th palette, we have a whitewashed and very manly palette in the monochromatic blues with grey tones :)  What better palette to scrap my little girl wrapped in a Carnival Cruise Line's beach towel, eh? :)  I used a sheet of paper from BoBunny's Mamarazzi, one sheet from the brand new MME's  and of course, a Jenni Bowlin Studio label die-cut paper.  I cut it up and staggered them to look like the waves :) 

Ah the delicious buttons, how I adore them.  How sad I am that they are no longer in my stash... I was hoping that they would represent the foam bubbles in the ocean, do they look a little like that?

As a part of this blog hop, we are to talk a bit about ourselves.  So hopefully you have seen a similar questionnaire as you hopped along :)
1. I live in Minnesota, U.S.A, and I am currently designing for these teams.
2. On my desk right now you will find an enormous mess of stuff. I don't clean up, I keep going.
3. My favorite color at the moment is Bazzill's Sour Apple.
4. Mostly, I scrap my family, my trips, and my family on trips.
5. For the Color Room layouts, I always begin with the gathering of supplies.  It is the best stash reduction regiment ever! 
6. My favorite food is the ones I did not have to prepare or cook myself.  Even more favorite if it is free!
7. My top 3 favoite tools are: my ruler, my Big Bite, and my paper piercer.
8. I get my inspiration from the hundreds of blogs I subscribe to :)

Well, that's it from me, your next stop is chez Julie B.

Oh before I go, fellow MINNESOTANS!!!  Do you LOVE October Afternoon like I do??!!  Head on over to the first ever OA Warehouse sale!
