Color Combo Challenge #68


Please welcome our Guest Designer this week, Nicole Harper!

Hey everyone out there!! Nicole Harper here, checking in as the Guest Designer for the week. (thanks to Janet for thinking of me...and the rest of the team for working with these ‘what was she thinking?!’ colors, lol)

I have been obsessed with paper and glue since elementary school...my heart would race every August when the new school supplies would come out. So I suppose my start in this hobby came as an ‘adult’ way to satisfy my creative urges, while still getting to play with paper and glue. (lol)

I most often scrap about my family...more specifically, my daughter Allison. She is a huge part of why I enjoy this so much...whenever I catch her paging through my scrapbooks, poring over every word and asking questions about whatever she finds in them, my heart soars. She and my husband Mike are my constant reminder that nothing is more important than family, time is fleeting and that laughter really can be the best medicine.

As far as my ‘style’, I don’t know that there is a name for it yet, lol. I guess I would say that I’m ‘clean’, but not ‘simple’. I don’t buy into the whole acid-free thing, and I believe that without journaling, all you have when you finish a page is a really pretty way to display a photo. I love to use ledger and graph paper, paint, alphabet stickers, patterned paper and a vintage element here and there on my pages. I shoot straight from the cuff and wear my heart on my sleeve...and my journaling pretty much reflects that. I guess in the end, my style is just simply ‘me’.

Hope everyone has fun with this color combo...it just really makes me smile.!!

Thank you so much Nicole! What a thrill (and such fun) it was to work with you this week!!

  1. Great Challenge and I love the colors.

  2. Neat colors! I am having trouble with the celadon! I have looked everywhere for an example of the color. Mine is actually a little greener, but I googled the color and there is a wide range to it. Hope mine is acceptable! (haven't done the LO yet...just gathering the supplies.

  3. My natural instinct is to do every LO blue and brown. Thank goodness for this challenge - Thanks Janet!!
    I'm afraid I've used more of a gray than brown. Here's mine for this week: PAPARAZZI

  13. What fantastic layouts so far!!

    they are great, keep 'em coming!

    we are sure in for a challenge to choose just one winner!

  14. I'm not quite sure how to link to here but here's my take on the colors- the border is also the dark brown. The flowers are stitched- the scan is blurry- it always seems to happen when I have the shimmer ribbon on it.
    Thanks for looking.
