Happy Times... 50

Hi there! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am! It's time for an all new Mixed Media Color Challenge! Thanks to all who took the time to play along and thanks to those who left encouraging comments. The talented Papercraft Star Design Team will be joining Sue and I for this challenge! For complete details and for more inspiration, please be sure to visit A Mixed Media Color Challenge.

For nearly the next two weeks, we will be playing with the following colors: peach, brown and tan
For my sample, I created a layout featuring a photo of Meredith and Connor that was taken years ago while on vacation on Maui:
After creating the background with a variety of patterned papers from my stash, I added lots of texture:

The diamond pattern was created using the Graduated Diamonds Stencil. I randomly stamped the text image from Collage Backgrounds and stamped a sentiment for the title from Timeless:

For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Keeping the best sketch challenge:
Thank you for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Mixed Media Color Challenge site for some fab inspiration from Sue and for complete details on how to join along.

When I saw this layout as inspiration for the new color challenge, my first thought was: I have to ask Mona or she can send it in at Keeping the Best. To be sure I jumped over to the blog and tadaaaa...there it was already. Beautiful page, love the softness and that picture is fun. Thanks for using the sketch and I am happy to use the AMMCC moodboard, love it.
