Colour Inspiration No. 05

Hello its kayleigh! Well isn't this a long overdue post from me? We were away on vacation with Eric's whole family at a cottage on the lake. We were told that there was internet there ...there was but you had to be sitting close to their office & be veeerrrryyyy patient. I tried to download something that may take a minute here and there an hour and half! But i did get some scrapping done, lots of beach time, good meals and lots of family time. Oh and the highlight for me: kicking my brother in laws *beep* at bowling on the the Wii bowling during our family tournament.

Then unfortunatly when we got home Makenna was sick with a double ear infection and we struggled to get back in the routine of home with regular naps and bedtimes. And i was also working like crazy to meet a deadline for a little something-something i am working on online. Thats all the hints i am giving you and will tell you soon - when i can! :)

Anyways today i bring you a colour challenge, its been awhile so i thought that we were due for one. Not going to lie the page started this challenge. This colour scheme is refreshing with a hint of girly or it could be over the top girly. Remember you can mix up the amounts of colour on your page to work for you. And you can always change the colours saturation to work as well. And if you don't have specific photos that come to mind to work with the scheme you could always try black and white or sephia.

On my photos i used a photoshop action from pioneer woman called seventies. I wanted to make the page look kinda "vintagey" (ya i made that word up!) so i thought this action worked well.

Here are a couple pages from the Designer Digitals Gallery to get the inspiration flowing!

Love the design of this page by Doris aka echogirl. Beautifully done. :)

Love the layering that Nath does on her pages. She has such a ease at making it all come together perfectly.

This page by Heidi is so great - love the blocking of paper & photos.

So many cool elements in here - like the fork!

This kit is just beautiful by Lynn, love her twisty ribbons!

This alpha in this fun kit by Lynn is one of my all time faves! Great buttons in here too.

These papers are stunning and there have been so many cool pages posted in the designer digitals gallery with them. The solids have a stunning texture to them.

Michelle Martin creates amazing patterned papers that i LOVE! That rose coloured floral paper is beautiful.

Some etsy inspiration would be fun as well.
This print is very cool!

How cute is this hat?

This looks so cozy for your coffee.

Love these poms!

These are so stinking cute!!

Have a good week and if you do a page based on this scheme don't forget to link us up! - kayleigh
