Introducing Color Me Monday on Wednesday

Jeanette Lynton is the founder and CEO of Close To My Heart. I have met her in person and heard her speak and she is inspiring! On her blog she posts a new color combination every Monday. Every week I have full intentions of creating something using her new color combination but have never made the time. Today I put aside excuses and made the time to use this weeks color combination.
Anyone who knows me knows that I NEVER put black and blue together so this layout did stretch me a little. Both layout designs are from "Reflections" one of CTMH's 3 amazing how to books. I love that the back of our B&T paper (background and texture) is a coordinating color pattern paper. The clover meadow and sunflower paper is from the "Animal Cookies" paper packet and the twilight paper is from the "Tinkerin" paper packet. I also implemented another product that I purchased when it was introduced but had never used. See the cute swirly thing behind the journaling piece? That is from the Fancy Cuts Die-Cuts Borders.

This was a lot of fun to mix and match from different paper packets and I got another layout in my album. I can't wait to see and use next week's new color combination. Stay tuned!!


  1. GREAT layout! Love your blue door, too!

  2. I love that! I especially love that you mixed and matched paper packets. I may have to get daring now... :)

  3. I'm shocked! I think I might have to do the color combination thing! I would also like to create a layout with every color combonation in the catalogs because I usually love them all. Great idea!
