Here's the beautiful color palette Janet came up with:
And we had a guest challenger, Jane Howden, at How Much Is Too Much. She posed the following creative challenge:
My challenge is all about shapes - circles, squares, hearts, etc. These can be punched, chipboard, stickers, whatever you have. Choose your shape and use it at least 10 times on your layout. I’d then like to see you use the name of your shape in your title - for example “You are in my heart” or “Singing star”.
With a busy back-to-school week, I needed to combine the challenges and came up with this layout:
I really started with the colors and thought these photos would work with the palette. Then it came to me that I could use the tag as my shape for HMITM. I have a ton of office store tags that I bought when they were all the rage. I knew I'd use a tag to hold my title.
