First Day of School?

More and more I find myself wanting to scrap! I've done 4 layouts this year. No, that's not a ton but it is double what I did last year, so I'm improving!

Obviously, I do not scrap in order. Usually, I go through my pictures looking for something that gets my creative juices flowing. I love these sweet pictures of the kids on their first day of school, the anticipation & excitement of a new school year. I pulled the colors for my layout from the clothes the kids are wearing...the blues from Conner's shirt & the Green from Ethan's shirt. I wanted a pop of color and decided on red, the strap of Ethan's backpack!

Choosing colors from your photos to use on your layout will give you a more cohesive look in the end!

I love it Mo, I am finding myself getting that bug back, wanting to scrap again. I love the blue, green and red. They just happen to be our color challenge colors this week. Today in fact. You should pop it in the color challenge at the Outlawz girlie, it is perfect inspiration!!
