Here is a link to the post she did on color, take a minute to read it, it's actually really interesting! http://vickichrisman.blogspot.com/2010/08/how-about-color-challenge.html
I'd like to know what are the favorite colors of my blog followers, mine is purple, although I do tend to reach for blues and greens a lot as well. If you have a minute post your fav color in the comments section here.
Now on to my challenge, surprisingly I actually had just bought some of this paper I used, from We B Scrappin and so was excited when I saw that they had included the colors for my color challenge.
I used 2 page maps from the Close to my heart "originals" layout book. I really like this book because it gives really simple and easy layouts without a lot of cutting. And then you can add to it whatever you want but just gives you the basic design. And of course gives you the cutting dimensions which I always nice. Thanks to taking scrapbook classes in the past with Karen Barber, Close to my Heart Consultant, I've learned to use a ruler, haha, and more importantly how to use the ruler on my cutter : ).
