Srap Challenge

Thanks to my supper crafty friend, Toni, I am participating in an online challenge blog. It is called "Favorite Things" and every two weeks there will be a new challenge {if you want to play along the blog is on my sidebar}. She had the great idea to do all the challenges into a book about herself, so I am being a total copycat and doing the same! The first challenge, favorite color. Here is my entry:

It is in a 6x12 album, so this double page spread is 6x24 inches. Kind of a challenge in itself to work with the odd size. The title page reads:

"My Favorite Color

Where are you?"

The journalling says:

"For as long as I can remember, purple has been my absolute favorite color. I just love it, all shades from lavender to the darkest hues. The problem? It is nearly absent in my life! Purple clothes? Hardly any! In my home decor? Not one bit! Purple car? Never! Even my scrap supplies were lacking. What's up? Someone told me that it was the most offensive color. Can't be! Maybe it is like a fine wine or a delicacy, enjoyed only in moderation....Yah, that's it!"

Great job with this challenge. Love the 6x12 (6x24) format you chose. And I particularly love what you had to say about your favorite color being absent in your world...I have the exact same problem. What gives, huh? LOL! My favs are bright orange and lime green...and I am certain that I own NOTHING with this color combo. How about it...wanna go shopping and add a little color to our world? LOL!

Just wanted to stop by and let you know I'm glad you decided to play along and I look forward to seeing what you do with the next challenge. {hugs} Lisa

Yay!! It's so fun that you're playing AND making a book for yourself too! I love that your doing 6 X 12 also (just a different orientation than mine). That way, when I get stuck, I can use your layouts as inspiration for me...HA! I'm loving the double layout you did with it!! Super creative and CUTE. I hope I get to see you next Friday :)
