The Color Room Design Team!!

I'm so excited to announce that I have been asked to be on The Color Room Design Team!!  I've been a fan of this site for quite a while now, I just love the inspiration this site provides with it's weekly color combinations and it's amazing gallery of work done by all the awesome members there!

This weeks color palette runs in the teal blues, apple green, sky blue and smokey grey.  You can find the coler palette #61 HERE  The layout above is my take on this color palette.  I had so much fun with this one!  I had this photo of one of my nephews Jared, (he's the daddy of the two little babies you often see me scrapping), in it he was wearing the exact colors in the palette :)  ........What I really love about this design team is that it allows me to go through my old stash and make use of the piles of goodies I've accumulated over the years!  The pretty edge background paper is one that I bought a couple of years ago by Creative Imaginations. The greenish background paper is a Prima paper and the brocade is another Creative Imaginations paper.  The pleated apple green trim is one by Pink Paislee (I just added a crystal strip from Zva Creative), The chipboard is is of course Dusty Attic.  NOTE:  I'm gonig to put up a list in my right side column soon on resources in Canada & the USA for Dusty Attic as I know many of you are wanting to find these products.   I used some glass drops (I picked up from Michaels in the floral department on the page too along with some small glass beads)   Here are some close-ups of this page.....


I painted the above DA pieces with some aqua blue paint and then painted with some bronze 3D paint and stamped with a flourish stamp so the aqua shows up underneath the bronze.

So if you are looking for a great jump off point to start a layout this weekend, come have a peek at The Color Room and join in the fun!

Congratulations on making the team - they really do have wonderful inspiration - I have used it many times in my own scrapping!!

Side note about the Dusty Attic resources - I would love it if you would add my online store as one of them to your list. (www.leaveapapertrail.com) I recently started to carry Dusty Attic chipboard but am not on their link yet.

Thanks and Congratulations again - your layout is absolutely divine - as usual!!!!!
