Living in Color Scrapbook Challenge

I love color.  Bright, vibrant, vivid, loud COLOR!  It's so hard for me to use muted tones when I'm making a card or scrapbook page.  And although I love the look of black and white photos, I rarely ever even think of converting color pics before printing them, because I'm so taken by all the color!  


So the Color Challenge at MFP Speedy TV this week has been an interesting one for me.  The challenge is to use Black, Grey, and one other color of your choice...purple for me...DUH!!  Haha!


Since I was primarily using black and grey, I wanted to use black and white photos but had to really dig deep to fine some that were already printed.  Luckily, my daughter thinks to convert color photos on occasion, so I was able to find some.  Of course, they're of her...are you getting sick of seeing layouts of her yet?  I take LOTS of pics of her!


I started with my trusty Silhouette Cameo and found a few shapes from their store.  I used a file called 12 x 12 Background Shapes to cut the grey pieces that are on the black background.  Then I used a second cutting file called 3 x 4 Journaling Cards - Love, to cut all the purple pieces.


I designed my own title.  The words, "Living In Color" kept popping into my head every time I looked at the B&W pic that had the big red pops of color.  I love that photo!


I used a stamp set from Mark's Finest Paper called Huge Blooms for the sentiment.  I finished the layout off with some adhesive black pearls, and poof...DONE!


I sure would love to see you link up with us this week!  You have until next Wednesday at 5 pm to join us!

What color will you choose?

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
