color combo. #5

*I cheated a little and did this weeks challenge last week... so sneaky :))*

I've decided sleepovers at my age are just plain exhausting! My 17yr. old niece came over a couple of weekends ago to spend the night at our house and I tried my best to stay up late talking with her.... but I'm just not that young anymore! I need my beauty rest! :)) So I went to bed, and apparently she stayed up a few more hours reading. Makenzie travels with a small personal library of books and magazines. So this weeks Color Combo. is dedicated to Makenzie!!

I knew that I wanted to find a Juicy Couture ad for this project. The colors are always bold and bright and just perfect for a teenage girl!
The inspiration:


The color combination:



black - white - tangerine orange - watermelon pink

I decided to make a little handmade bookmark for Makenzie, something quick and simple to make but also practical for any book-lover. My bookmark is made from all fabric scraps, but paper scraps would make a lovely book mark as well!






I'm thinking of doing a scrapbook challenge for next weeks color combo. Maybe some inspiration and a little challenge? It could be fun! I'll post some more details tomorrow as I think of them!

Hi sweetie <3 Thinking of you and hoping that you're doing great! (or better than what you were feeling in the past few days).

WOW that color combination is GORGEOUS!!!! so bright, eye-popping candy <3 <3 <3...I LOVE IT and that bookmark is perfect for an avid reader :)

and the staying-up late thing....I can do it, but only when the kiddos are in school - I stayed up til 5-6 am last week (only one night though), and I was able to go back to sleep after I put the kiddos on the bus ehhehehehe :) But to stay up late every night....no way Jose! I can't do that anymore!!!
