The Summer of Colour 2012 #1



Over at Twinkle Twinkle it is the summer of colour! Each week an inspiring ice cream image will be posted, inspiring because all who join in take the colours from that flavour to work with. This weeks was Rainbow Sherbet. This is my FAVOURITE flavour, I usually have it from Millies cookies with blueberry sherbet as well, yummy! The colours however are so NOT me, lol, they are quite scary, bright pink with orange, yellow & a bit of white, even more scary when most of my scrapbooking is done with photos of my lads who themselves usually have very little to do with those colours. I saw it as a challenge & faced it head on & ended up rather pleased with the result.......
A simple layout but I think it shows everything up nicely. The pinks & oranges reflect the heat so much in the photos though the photo of the page doesnt show the vibrance of the papers enough.

Thank you to Carmen for introducing me to this event, & to Kristin for running it.

  1. Sun? What is that?... Great layout K, you are definately on a roll! Like the distressed edge too. My sons still enjoy sandpits even at 10 and 12!

  4. I love that title font and the sandcastle K :D

    I bet you'll NEVER guess what the first thought that came into my head was for mint choc chip - wondering if it would go down OK on the hop... ah well, that is what the colours have inspired in me ;)

    Don't think I've ever had a sherbet ice-cream, it made me think if a sorbet when I saw the colours.
