I am trying to be a really busy girl, stamping wise. July was a really busy month. I went on two vacations. One, at the end of the month with my niece to England. The other, was over 4th of July weekend. It was our kids and us in a cabin with no running water, no flush toilets, no electricity, and best of all, no internet! Yes, I can do this type of vacation for about 2 days. We were there three…….. EEK! We all survived! We had a couple of minor crashes, one resulting in an injury (road rash mostly). But, we had a BLAST!! We were in Silver Jack, CO and it’s a stunning place! I mean STUNNING!! Anyway, in the beginning of the month, you saw the card that I made with the One Wild Ride Stamp set. Well, here’s the actual scrapbook page that I wanted to make!
The color combo is Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, and Early Espresso. I used the Best Badge Punch for a border at the bottom, incorporating many of the images in this set. The Bunch of Banners Framelits cut out the “Born To Ride” banner. I think it came out pretty neat. You will see more scrapbook pages in the near future. I am going to, not only, work on this trip but the trip to England as well! I have a LOT of photos of England!!
Sometimes, I have a really hard time choosing colors. I tend to be very monochromatic. However, when someone says, “here, use this color combo,” I feel more at ease with branching out and using something different. Today’s post is about the Color Challenge we were given. This color combo is WAY out of my comfort zone and I really didn’t think the pink in the card would work with my vision. I wanted to make a masculine card. Below, you will find a copy of the image they shared with us. I interpreted the colors as Early Espresso, Crumb cake (because they are YUMMY together), Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist. There’s another green in there… but I just couldn’t add that in… LOL
So why motorcycles? Well, they are a mode of transportation right? And you need a mode of transportation to travel…. no that’s not right. For the 4th of July weekend, my family went camping and we brought our ATVs and motorcyles with us! It was a blast! We came away with only minor scrapes and bruises to boot. LOL. I threw in a picture below. Where we stayed was sooooo green and so beautiful! I can’t wait to go back!! You can see the motorcycles on the trailer, the cabin we stayed in and oh yeah, that handsome man in the photo is my eldest son!
