scrappy today. I've been really inspired by colour lately, and the challenge boards over at Color Combos Galore have really helped push me creatively.

Like this page made for Combo #176

I took these pictures on my Halifax trip 2 summers ago, but working on layouts related to it has stalled for the last year and a half. The challenge to use clouds on a layout combined with the colours swatch really helped this one come together.

This one made for Combo #174

I loved this pic of my youngest on the first day of school this year.

And this one made for Combo #175

I love every picture that Stacy took for us last April for our 12.5 anniversary. This colour combo was hard for me, but the challenge to use the word comfort in the journaling or title made it easier to put the page together.

I'm also determined to use up more my stash this year instead of buying more. This has come about for a few reasons :
  1. The LSS in my city closed. I now have to drive to the closest one.
  2. My kit club closed up shop too. I have so much left over to use up, I don't need to shop right now.
  3. I don't have the funds to shop as much as I used to.

If you've never checked out Color Combos Galore, I encourage you to go & have a peek! With 176 different combos, I'm sure you'll find one that will inspire you!!
