Christmas Color Challenge
Happy six days before Christmas!!! Are you ready yet? I'm getting there. I was in the middle of working on my project last night when I got a call from my daughter. She spent the day sick yesterday and was still feeling crummy, plus had a fever starting. She's a grown woman and her fiance was spectacular in taking care of her, but you know, sometimes when you're sick, there's nothing like having mom there. So I packed up and made the 70 mile drive and spent the night in the guest room so I could hang out with her today and force feed her tea and crackers!
Anyway, my photos were taken quickly last night before I left, but hopefully, you can get an idea what I was working on!
Today begins week two of the all-new Color Challenge over at Mark's Finest Papers! Here's the guidelines our challenge coordinator set up for us:
The Color Challenge is for all types of paper crafts, not just scrapbook pages. Each week we will have a color or colors that you have to incorporate in your project, and of course, you must use stamp(s) on the project.
The Color Challenge Guidelines are...
1. Please use the challenge colors as your main colors. You can use any shades or hues of the challenge colors.
2. You can add any neutral colors (browns, grays, white, cream, kraft etc) that you wish.
3. You can use an accent color in addition to the challenge colors, but it must be an accent only and not one of the main colors in your project.
4. You must use stamps on your project.
Remember your can create any type of project you want for this challenge but you must use stamp(s) on your project. They don't have to be Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamps but if you do use MFP stamps, you will be entered twice for a chance to win our weekly stamp prize.
So...our color pallet for today, in honor of the upcoming holiday is Red and Green! I didn't add any photos to my layout yet, because I want to save it for Christmas pics from this year. I'm hoping to get enough to make a whole album, since I have a shiny new camera! So anyway, you're just seeing photo mats for now.
I started with a partial page kit and then added some of my own touches...the Christmas trees, the words "joy" and "Christmas" and the cute little holly leaves peeking around the corner of the picture matting. The leaves are from the stamp set by Mark's Finest Papers called Holly Jolly Greetings. I stamped them with Black Memento ink. I may go back and add some more in random places after the photos are added.
I hope you'll join us for the challenge this week! Because of Christmas next week, the deadline to link up will be extended until Friday December 27th. See you there!
Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
