More colour inspiration............

When I do a colour challenge, I like to start off with full sheets of cardstock, so A4 size. If I make a card then I'm usually left with large pieces of cardstock and smaller scraps. So I like to make up a scrapbook layout or a 3D item. Otherwise these peices get put into my scrap basket, but then I never seem to use them.
As I said in the previous post, the colours from the Inkspiration Colour Challenge for this week are just gorgeous. So I picked out this photo of my four boys and made up an 8x8 scrapbook page.
Once again, I've used the set Friends 24-7 and the Friendly Words roller. I think these are my favourites at the moment. I've also used a piece of DP from Good Morning Sunshine.
With the wide piece of twill, I've rolled the wheel in choc chip and added a clear button with some twine. Apart from that and the photo corner, I haven't really added many embellishments. I tried, but nothing worked and in the end I felt the page was complete. I certainly didn't want to take away from this cute picture!

Cardstock: Choc Chip, Really Rust Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla, DP Good Morning Sunshine
