Hawaiian Night - Life.Paper.Scrapbook November Colour Challange

Hello there!

I'm joining in again with the colour challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. I really love the fresh colours that they've provided for their November Challenge:

Here is the layout that I made using these colours:

 The photos are from our cruise last year... We all had such a great time at the Hawaiian Night!!

These We R Memory Keepers papers and embellishments were perfect for the theme of my layout and the colours were perfect for this challenge!

Here are a few closeups to show you some of the detail on my layout:

I used this Prima flower to mimic the flowers in our leis that we were wearing. I also fussy cut a couple of hibiscus flowers from Kaisercraft patterned paper to layer behind.

 The phrases 'Cruising' and 'The Beach' were cut out of one of the sheets of WRMK paper. I also added some Studio Calico Wood Veneers and My Minds Eye Enamel Dots.

The patterned paper conveniently had lines already on it, so I just journalled straight onto it!

I couldn't seem to find the right colour lettering for my title, and when I did, it didn't fit well in the spot where I wanted it. Plus I had run out of some of the letters that I needed. So instead I used this QuicKutz 'Dragonfly' alphabet die. I was able to match up the colours perfectly with co-ordinating cardstock and it fitted perfectly in the spot where I wanted it... Problem solved!!

This embossed tag is from the same range as the WRMK patterned papers. I mounted it with some foam tape for some added dimension. I also popped a coloured Typo doily behind the photo to add some layering.

Well, that's it from me! Can't wait to see what the next colour challenge will be at L.P.S!

Thanks for visiting and thanks so much for your comments - I love to read them!!
