So in between all of the house stuff, I managed to squeeze in some time for Crate Paper. At the end of last month I posted my It's a Wrap post and today is my April Color Challenge. It's been 1 year, this month, since taking over the color challenges for the Crate blog! I wish I had noticed that before yesterday as I had a celebration theme in mind for the challenge! This month, I went the route of traveling/vacations as my inspiration and created a color palette that I swore I would never do... almost a primary color combination. Ordinarily, I hate the combination of primary colors with a passion! It reminds me of comic books but I thought if I were to tweak the colors a bit, maybe, I would be able to work with them. I was right! The combination of light blue, a medium yellow and a pinky red mixed with a heavy does of bright white was all it took! Who knew? I created 2 framed artwork pieces, one for the entry way and one for Alaina's room.
If you have a chance to scrapbook this coming week, get out your Crate Paper and play along! The kids have the day off of school today and we have plans to finish some last minute dish shopping before the cooking marathon kicks off on Saturday! I am so excited for Easter this year!!
