A Divine Palette {at CCG}

Challenge 205 is live at Color Combos Galore. Isn't this a beautiful Inspiration Board?


Here is the page I created. The picture was taken with my new webcam. I've been chatting with friends on Skype for the past week, and for some reason whenever I'm looking at a light computer screen, my face gets all whited out and my friends have this joke, which is what my hidden journaling is all about. (It's an inside joke, so I won't be sharing the journaling.)


I used an odd assortment of papers for this page. The colors were tricky to get an exact match, but I found several that were pretty close to the palette. The teal paper in the background is by Heidi Grace and it has some pretty embossed dandelions, most of which unfortunately got covered up as I started adding to my page.

Here are some details. That big pink flower came from a K&Co pad of paper (Handmade collection). And the lanterns are from Webster's Pages, of course. Love those!


The floruishy teal paper is by Foofala. An oldie but goodie. Speaking of oldies but goodies, I still love my old Heidi Swapp letters. So classic. I don't think they'll ever go out of style--which is a good thing since I have a million packages of them! The little words are cut out of a Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends paper. There's some of my mesh under the title for the Designer's Challenge. The silvery dots are Liquid Pearls. They always turn out pointy for me. Gotta experiment with them to figure out how to make them more like pearls and less like microscopic Hershey's kisses.


Thanks to my friend Tracee who suggested adding the rhinestones to these flowers when I was saying my layout needed more bling. The flower branch was cut out of an old Prima paper. I glazed them with Stickles. I also added that photo corner at the last minute. The alphabet paper is also from an Odds & Ends paper, and the "Document" journaling spot and harlequin pattern paper are by Teresa Collins. They were just the right shade of red. I found that the red in Jenni Bowlin's papers are pretty close to the red in the palette.


I added Glossy Accents to the little circles in the centers of these pink flowers. I also outlined the flowers with a fine pen.


Come on over and check out the beautiful work from the rest of the team, and play along with us! You may just become our next featured member!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and reading about my page!

Came to your blog to get myself some true inspiration and boy was I in for a treat! been backtracking it as I've been so totally snowed under at work that I have barely had time to breath, no play. You so totally excel in combining anything and everything from your stash and it looks fresh and gorgeously innovative! looking at the ravishing babe in the web cam pic. Hey, isn't it about time you had a new photo taken and changed avatar?! You really earn gold stars in so many places Debbi, awesome awesome awesome!! xoxoxo

Stunning...I love your layout design..its looks fab! Love the beautiful selection of flowers, that tree branch, all the bling, and all your other wonderful details. I agree about the Heidi Swapp Letters..they are timeless. :)
Now on a less cheerful note, I was so incredibly shocked and sad to read your note saying that you have left CCG! I have been wanting to touch base with you ever since, but it has taken a week after returning from the States, to catch up on everything and to finally get round to your blog. I can't imagine CCG without you. :( You really made it such a warm welcoming site to participate at, and you are going to be so missed...you are a huge loss to CCG. With your talent, I know that you've going to be busy with all kinds of things, so i'll keep up to date via your blog and may play along at another site that you design for. :) Wishing you loads of continued scrappy success as you move on to new things. Hugs.
