It's 2 a.m here & I've just finished this layout &
photographed it at night. Not the way I prefer to do it
but I didn't want to delay getting it uploaded to The
Color Room on time. I'll take some daylight shots soon &
if they look a whole lot better I may swap them over.
We've been busy this week with school starting aswell as
workmen all over the property installing lights around our pool
area & uplighters in our garden (including wrapping one of
our Palms with an 18m string of rope lights - looks AMAZING
- photos to follow SOON - our Christmas gift to ourselves!)
I used the romantic palette from The Color Room #92,
together with the latest sketch from Creative Scrappers (#190)
& the Inspiration Photo from Challenge Me Happy
(Challenge 14 - Scraplifting Trina McClune) as I thought
they all went together perfectly!

(You still have a few days left to play along)
With the lovely bright photo I chose the "Eggplant/aubergine"
as my base with the Custard Cream around the photo,
bringing in the eggplant & rustic rose through stamping.
I layered up a few Glitz Design Vintage Blue elements
with some Prima flowers & Evalicious badges, my
focal point being a stunning bookpaper concertina
flower sent to me by my sweet friend Mitra from NY.
I punched and inked the border before stamping in the Eggplant &
Rustic Rose. I cut the heart out of a die-cut card from Glitz
Design & raised up both die-cuts for some extra dimension.
I chose the title "Love You" as I wanted to keep things simple
& the Evalicious badge is just so lovely it was quite sufficient
along with the date. I have lots of photos of Chelsea & her
boyfriend Cameron so there'll be plenty of opportunities to
journal on other pages in the future.
