Colour Combo Blog Hop

     
This is the colour inspiration Amy gave us for July's Colour Hop.


I have used a gone-wrong background from another LO which fitted the basic colour scheme perfectly to make a layout about R's new footsplint. I have never scrapped about the splint R wears on his left leg - a big omission in a record of our family life - and when these pirate-themed papers arrived with my copy of Scrapbook Magazine the day after he got a new skull 'n' crossbones printed one, I knew I needed to remedy this.

I had 1 lonely  funky foam foot-shaped embellishment lurking in the bottom of a box which I used as a stamp to add some footprints.


The dark red is there, but hidden. I used the back of a Power Ranger's game card to include some hidden journalling

To see the rest of this month's hop, join the links below. I won't be committing to this in August (I almost missed the 16th today, so I have no hope of remembering the date when we're on holiday!) but I'll visit as many as I can and I'll see you all back here in September.

Super creative! Love that you were able to reuse a background. And, the use of a card for a journaling card, you got creative juice girl!!

Oh my! I adore the footprints and the colour combo does wrok really well. And isn't it great to scrap something you've been meaning to do for ages? It always feels like such an achievement! x

Nice job on the layout. Good for you for making less than perfect attempt work for you on another layout. I like the idea of hidden journaling too.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I really love it that you used a background that didn't work for another project. I also love to use hidden journaling.

Love this! Love how you incorporated a background that had given you issue previously. Always nice to get that out of your stash! Nice work :)
