Bloom and Grow

We have a new prompt up at The Studio!  The challenge: Let's get in the mood for summer! Scrap a layout using orange and yellow as your main colour scheme!

Using a fantastic two-page sketch from Sketchy Thursdays, I scrapbooked photos of the beautiful rose bush we have on the side of the house.  I pulled the dark green from the photos to help ground the bright, sunny colors and used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch for the first time. 

Like Amanda says at The Studio blog, these aren't necessarily colors I often pair together, but I LOVE how vibrant this layout is.

Cosmo Cricket is sponsoring in July and August!  They are such a generous, funny, and down-to-earth company - I love them. 

If you have a chance, please visit the blog and see the other DT member's takes on the challenge, and don't forget that there are just two days left for The Studio Design Team call.  Come play! We'd love to have you!  Tessa
