The Color Room Palette #75

This was a special milestone for The Color Room....their Palette #75....Congrats ladies!!  And I was so thrilled when I saw the palette! Such a pretty one, colors that speak to me!  Here is the Palette...
I always have fun digging through my new & old stash picking papers and embellishments to fit the palette!  If I don't have matching patterned paper then there is always cardstock, paints and ink.  I fortunately had the colors I needed in my stash.  I had some paper from My Minds Eye (29th Street Market) and some BasicGrey 'Kioshi', I found the perfect shade of teal in a Prima butterfly in my stash.  And of course I couldn't make a page without including a bit of my favourite chipboard from Dusty Attic.  I wanted to give it a lacey look so I painted the piece white and then used a Prima lace stamp (from one of their 'Frame It' stamp collections).  The blooms are all Prima and the pearl flourish is Zva Creative.   I want to thank my dear friend Romy Veul for the pretty teal & purple bloom centers, she sent me such a lovely surprise pack a little while back, I was so happy to have these to add to my page...Thank-you Romy! xx    Here are a few close-up pics...

But this is not all The Color Room has going this month!!  Two of the TCR girlies (Lydell Quinn & Emma Starfrace) created this amazing Digital kit especially for this palette!  They allowed the DT to have some fun with this digi kit, so some of us created a digi page too and some created Hybrid pages combining 'real' paper with digital images they printed out and used on their page.  Here is the digi kit....

......and here is the digital page I created using this pretty kit of papers, embellishments, alpha's and phrases.  The photo is one that I recently took of my nephew Jared & his wife Danielle (they are the parents of those cute little babies I've been scrapping lately).....

Believe me, I am no digi expert but this kit was easy and fun to use...I managed this page in under a half hour.  Got to say digi sure is fast!  It's a fun change of pace, but still, when it comes down to it I'm still a paper girl, I love the cutting paper cutting and getting my hands dirty :)  If you are interested in this kit, come check out The Color Room this week, you'll find more information HERE

I agree, it's always such a pleasure to look through my stash and find the perfect matching colours for a TCR palette. Their palettes stimulate me to think outside the box and mix up products from different manufacturers, just love that!

And you used these colours to perfection! Wow! What a gorgeous detailed layout! I'm loving the included bits of teal and the gorgeous techniques you used on the DA piece. Such amazing work!
