the colors of September

It seems the more time I spend at Crate Paper, the less I post here. The Crate Paper blog has taken over! I really need to work on finding a good balance because I don't know how other's are able to manage 2 blogs. It's not easy - 2 posts in one week! whew!!! I just posted my Color Challenge for Sept. on the..... I'll warn you though, it's really pretty and you're probably going to want to contribute to the challenge this month! ok go ahead and click on the link -----> Crate blog.

This months color palette was inspire by the lovely Napa Valley. Have you ever had the chance to visit Napa during Autumn? I use to pass through Napa often, on my way out to the ocean for the day and was always taken aback by the changing landscape. Sometimes the vineyards in Fall would glow a coral-orange color and the hillsides would turn a purpleish-red in the shadows. It's one of those places you'd have to see for yourself to really appreciate.

Here's our color combination:

I created 2 layouts this time around. I actually made a 3rd project but decided to save it and post it later this month. I clearly have too much fun with these challenges!

(pie-charts are my new love!)

ok, so that brings us up to date with the challenge! I've spent the entire week scrapbooking, I'm thinking I deserve to take the weekend off. There's fun to be had and some summer sales at the mall to check out. Happy Friday!
