When Janet sent me the color swatch for this week's challenge at Color Combos Galore, my first thought was "ugh." A big ole ugh." But a commitment's a commitment, so I set to looking for papers and once I started working on this page, I fell in love with the color scheme! I think the colors were just perfect for this adorable photo of my nephew.
I've been trying to use some of my really old stuff, mixed with newer stuff, and here I used some really old Chatterbox papers and some ANCIENT frames--got a whole bunch of them when they were the craze--This & That, I think they were called. I'm slightly perturbed becaused I used the wrong frame. I had another frame all picked out--it was a solid red, rather than polka-dot. Somehow I adhered the wrong frame and didn't realize it until the whole page was done and I found the one I had meant to use upside down in my pile of scraps. The gray paper in the background truly is an exact match to the one in the color swatch, but my scanner sometimes plays tricks with colors.
