Unique Perspectives

Hello Hello

Welcome to my Blog!
Today is...
National Scrapbooking Day

I know, I know...
what in the world does that mean?
It means for you & I to get our craft on!

So let's do this
Here is another layout to share with you. But before we get into it I have a confession to make, this layout makes me laugh out loud every time I look at it because the main color is pink and I am a reformed pink hater. 
What's even funnier is that the project in the photo isn't even pink, it's red but because of the way my printer interpreted the colors I could only match the photo to my pink paper.
I do love the paper doily in the background, it's larger than most of the ones I've used before. I like that it helps almost make the photo appear larger. I also really like my hot pink holey paper backed with the black card stock, I think that huge pop of color helps make everything jump off the paper and with the lighter pink chevron underneath it all it's still grounded.
So as far as layouts go, this is probably one of the loudest ones I've ever created. I am typically not drawn to the bright colors but for some reason the photo in this layout just wanted 'loud' so that's what I went with. Also in this layout I used lots of stash stuff, using what I already have and let me tell you, that is a really darn good feeling.
 Hope this helps all of you to liven things up, use colors that you wouldn't normally use and maybe even some louder patterns that you don't normally pick up. 
I thank you for stoppin' in and hope you have a wonderful day gettin' your scrap on.
