Colour Combo Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Colour Combo Blog Hop!

If you have been following the hop you should have arrived from Lesley.

If you have just happened upon my blog today and would like to join in, the full hop is listed at the bottom of this post :D
Our challenge is to take this gorgeous colour combination and create a papercrafting project with it - a layout, card, mini book or off the page project - the choice is yours!

I had some gorgeous My Minds Eye 'Stella & Rose' papers that I knew would be perfect for this colour combo. The title and heart are both from a Maya Road mini chipboard album, which I've covered with patterned paper and doodled on. The felt roses are from my LSS, and the rub on quote on the photo is from October Afternoon. I used Shimelle's sketch of the week from 27th April for this layout.















This is quite possibly my favourite photo of my parents (sorry Mum!) and this layout will be taking pride of place in a shadow box frame on the wall of my new craft room (when I eventually get in there!).















Here's the blog hop list in full:

Your layout is lovely. I am loving how everyone is interpreting the colours is such different ways.

I also like the idea of displaying layouts in Shadow boxes

i love this LO and the sentiment behind it is so perfect. i'm so glad u put on the closeups too as i would have missed the lyrics on the photo............that song is one of my faves of all time. i love the use of the colours and flowers together and it will look beautiful in the shadow box.
