Inkspiration Colour Challenge #19

Hello to you all on this lovely Friday.  As part of being in the Design Team for the Inkspiration Challenges, it's my turn to host.  This week is a fun colour challenge:

And here's what I've come up with this week:
My sister-in-law has kindly given me photo's of her cute girl, Amber, so I can create pretty girly scrapbook pages.  So for this weeks challenge, I decided to pick out a picture and use these fun colours to whip up a page.  I must say, I am really happy with the end result!
This is an 8x8" layout and I've started with a base in White,  Then I've added cardstock and pattern paper from the Designer Series paper by Stampin'Up.  I've also printed up some of my own paper with the word 'sweet', to use as a background.
For the embellishments, I've used some fabric flowers and lace doily.  These are items you will find in my Etsy store right here - Simply cards & Creative bits
I've also dug out an old favourite stamp set - Be Happy - by Stampin'Up.  This one is perfect for scrapbooking and you can make some fun embellishments with it.
I've also printed up a line of journalling and matted this onto more pattern paper.
Here's a closer look:
The design team will have some amazing inspiration too, so pop along to their blogs and give them a lovely comment:

I love that you've made a scrapbook page! And all of the textural elements you've added at the bottom are awesome - makes you want to reach out and touch the page! Very cool result :D

HI Chantelle,

Hi Chantelle,
These colours really challenged me. You've worked them in so well with your photo — they were a good selection of colours for that photo (or should I say the photo was a good choice for the colours!)
Thanks for hosting the challenge for us this week.
