A Bright Color Challenge Means Soccer

I've been following the blog at Life Paper Scrapbook lately.  In addition to lots of good information, they have two challenges a month - a color challenge and a sketch challenge.  Yesterday I shared my take on the June sketch challenge.  And when linked that layout to the Life Paper Scrapbook blog, I saw that the June color challenge was posted. 

The June color challenge is full of bright summery colors - which makes me think of - what else - a soccer layout.  I know - you're looking at the picture of flowers and saying - "really, soccer?" 

I had printed a copy of a layout by Lilith Eckels that I especially liked (I love all her her work, but this one especially caught my eye for some reason) that served as my starting point for my layout.  I loved all the bits and pieces she used.  So I pulled out an assortment of patterned paper - some new, some from my scraps and lots of stickers, die cuts, and other bits and got to work.  When I finished, I didn't like at as much as I like the layout Lilith did, but it was pretty cute.

See you can find all the colors from the color challenge in my layout - even pink.  And I loved the large journaling card from Carta Bella's new line, Well Played.

I loved the way embellishment clusters framed the photo block on Lilith's layout.  I ended up with 3 clusters on my page.

 The cluster at the top of the page used Basic Grey, Studio Calico, My Minds Eye, and Theresa Collins.  It was lots of fun to mix all those different elements.

 I dug out my old Creative Memories circle punch to held ground the embellishment cluster on the side of the page.

I added a number sticker from Jenni Bowlin at the bottom of the page to finish off the embellishment cluster - it was Nicholas's jersey number.  (And after I took the picture I turned that phrase sticker around so that it was right side up - LOL).

Now you see what I mean, right?  This color challenge was perfect for a soccer layout.

Have a super Saturday - hope you have time to scrap.
