Feel like a Colour Challenge?

... then pop over to the Colour Room today!  :)

Just a quick post today and one lonesome little layout to share.  The new palette this week at TCR is out and it included two of my favourite colours in the one palette.  I was so pleased to see orange and blue together, but wasn't so sure about the green.  I was therefore pretty bemused to see that the finished product made a major feature of the green!!  What the?.... not at all sure how that happened, but I'm pretty happy with the result:

{a beautiful friendship}

A real mish mash of product lines in there, but i tend to cross brand boundaries all the time when scrapping, rather than use a product kit.  How about you?  There is a Crafter's Workshop template (naturally...:)), a Dusty Attic chippy frame, Kaiser and Prima flowers, Hambly overlay, old TCP Studios pp, Glitz and Pink Paislee too, 7Gypsies tape... oh, and i fussy cut those vines from a really really really old piece of Urban Lilly pp.  I also popped on some of Miss Wally's bakers twine and Chantelle's Creative Bits little bird button that i've been holding onto for some time now.  Geez, did i forget anyone!! lol. 

I just adore this photo of dd#2 and ds#2 together at a sports carnival.  The relationship between both girls and their not-so-baby brother has always been one that i enjoy to watch.  Probably because the age gap between them is larger, they are both really protective and mothering towards him, even when he breaks stuff and paints their doona covers with nail polish and lip gloss!!


.. and check out the amazing inspo pick and palette:



Still school hols in these parts, so the house is a bit chaotic at best!!  The kids are enjoying just spending time at home and decompressing from what has been a really busy school year so far.  It's nice to see them finding ways of enjoying each other's company and inventing games and activities... most of them amicable!  :)  Today's scented balls and chocolate mud cake making were a major succes!!  And i managed a sleep in.  Woohooo!! 

I hope you are all well.  I'll be back with some more shares and 'random everydayness' as soon as we are back into our normal routine... whatever that is!?    :))

Thanks so much for stopping by.

jules, I think you have used that palette wonderfully, because that page is a real feast for the eyes. Love all your bits and bobs and yep, I always break product rules!
That is great that all children get alone and love each other, hope they will always do that.
oooh and if there is any mud cake left, send it this way - somehow I think it will be all gone!
YA at the sleep in :)
enjoy your weekend. x

It's a beautiful page Jules! I'm like you and mix everything up on my page. I rarely (unless that's the brief!) stick to one manufacturer when left to my own devices :)
