Real World Color I

Well, Cathy picked a great color combination to challenge us. I love this palette, but I have to say I spent a lot of time changing my mind on patterned paper. I knew I wanted to use some, but I kept arguing with myself over what I wanted to use.

I dug in to Ignatius' picture album from his first days, as yesterday's spread was all about King Max. Glad I was medicated. You know, the 3 AM feedings, the diaper changing... that stuff is such a pain. But there are some things about infancy that I just adore and can never get back. May I always remember what it was like to first hold my boys!

Cathy's sketch was for a simple 8.5" x 11" page. I really can't believe how, when I am finally sitting and focusing, I can whip these pages out. I used some of my stickers from Stampin' Up!'s Summer Home Simply Scrappin' kit. The sentiments on the stickers were perfect for this layout.

Baja Breeze is now becoming one of my all-time favorite cardstocks. I also used SU!'s Afternoon Tea patterned paper.
