Sharing Scrapbook Pages on Sunday

Colour me Scrappy (actually Color me Scrappy!) is a great source of inspiration with colours  and sketches... completely up my street.

I decided to complete CMS Challenge #53....
using the colours.......

and the sketch.....

to make another JYC page.....

I forgot to add the date before I took the photograph for this January page about saying goodbye to the elf after Christmas.  I am not sure when the challenge ended but it was obviously before January 31st as I had thought, as the linky was closed.  

I decided to combine the CMS Challenge with the weekly UKS challenge which this week was...
use ONE black and white photo
frame the photo
use bling 
use ink/mists 
use no more then TWO flowers 

Initially this was quite challenging as I didn't love the colours as I am not a pinky girl, I am also not a bling girl or a flower girl most of the time, yet I managed to add all the requirements to the page and ended up really liking it too!


  1. It's lovely Ruth, a really great page x

  2. You've made the most of the blues in contrast to the pink, and it looks so well that I would never have guessed you were outside your comfort zone!

  3. I wondered how I might use those colours too Ruth, but you did well. I love the idea of having an Elf visit at Christmas, I hope yours gave you lots of fun.

  4. I love the star behind the photo - a gorgeous addition to your JYC album.

  5. What a yummy color combination and great sketch. Thanks for sharing,
