Color Combo Blog Hop

I can't believe that it is already the middle of October! It is time for another Color Combo Blog Hop. I will have the entire list of participants at the end of the hop so that you don't miss a stop.

For October, we chose between three fall color combinations from Design Seeds. Here is the one that I chose:

After reading this article earlier in the week on Scrapbook Update, I was attracted to the combination with grays and yellows. Last night, I scrapped one of my favorite photos of Alex from the summer.

This is a digital page designed in My Digital Studio, and most supplies are from Stampin' Up. I also used a stamp designed by Ali Edwards available at Designer Digitals.

The journaling reads:
Our neighbor was nice enough to let you help water his lawn on some hot summer evenings. You had fun watering the plants and playing with the hose. One day, you exclaimed, "My belly's wet!" We could not help but laugh! Not only was your belly wet, but you were soaked from head to toe.

Our neighbor also blogs, and you can read his great food blog at http://www.sanantoniojoe.com/ .

Your next stop on the blog hop is http://sugarandscrap.blogspot.com

You can see more ways to use this color combination and two others by following the entire hop:

Great use of colors! Nice layout on the subject of "every day" moments. I don't do those enough.

So cute. You are my color combo sister since we are the only two (so far) to choose this one! I read recently grey & yellow are a trend this year - so we must be very hip & cool scrappers, no?

Scribble Monster said...

So lovely, that combo and you have interpreted it beautifully.

Alysse said...

Wow. The yellow on the gray just pops. I want to use this combo sometime in the future. Beautiful page!

Cheryl McCain said...

I love the flow of your page, the embellishments AND your journaling!

I did feel hip using a "trendy" color combo. I think that the colors will work with a variety of photos :)

The article linked on Scrapbook Update shows great yellow and gray paper out right now and I found some more papers on Designer Digitals.
