“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

I was just starting to work on the pages of my hair cut/donation to Locks of Love and this happened to work very well! Great timing indeed! So the first set follows the challenge exactly and just uses the 3 colors and a neutral, the second adds a splash of Juniper to the mix. Only the first layout is for the challenge but the colors worked so well, I used them on my second layout as well!
Paper: Emporium Creative Basics, Key to my Heart, Unforgettable Paper Pack, blush and Colonial White Cardstock
Inks: Vineyard Berry, Blush, Creme Brulee, Cocoa
Stamp sets: Something Splendid, Chocolate Alpha large and small, A Love

But, wait, there's more....I did a second card as well to satisfy the first idea that I had, the one that needed more room! I converted the card into a 5" by 7" to accommodate my runner girl on her jaunt through the grass and flowers. I am enjoying using the Splendor paper pack and the designer brads that match - so much that you might just see it show up again soon!
I've enjoyed playing with this sketch - now head on over to the H2H Challenges blog to gather inspiration to create your own art!
