so i'd never tried my hand at a mini-album before. i've altered some journals and tins and boxes and such, but a mini? nope. i have been accumulating these little chipboard albums for a while, and i finally decided it was TIME.
this week's Color Challenge at Design Dollies is one of my FAVORITE color combos to date. i had no clue what i wanted to do with it, but i was all geared up for a scrapbook page. WELL! when i dug out the photos, i came across a whole SET that i thought went well with the colors, so that set the wheels in motion.
here's this week's combo:
BROWN, TEAL, CREAM and a POP OF RED (just a smidgen!)
and i went to town. here's my entire mini album from my trip to Mexico:
(ya gotta click to enlarge, 'cuz these photos look like poo on here!)
whatcha think? i was pleased for my first attempt! there are definitely things i'd do differently, were i to start this project over, but i'll call this a learning experience.
PLAY WITH THE DOLLIES! you MUST check out what the other Dollies have done with this one - STUNNING creations from our talented darlings! here's where you'll find this challenge, and here's the prize:
lots of funky stuff in here - i tried to pick out some stuff that will coordinate well, and give you lots of variety, so hopefully someone will be happy to win it!
and there that is! i'm off to the shore with hubbin and The Son - have a fabby monday!
