ScrapFIT # 66 & Challenge Me Happy #21 Reveals!

***If you are here for the My Scraps & More Birthday Blog Hop, click HERE***

Good morning, fellow scrappers :) Today is the 15th, which means lots of new scrappy inspiration coming your way. I have two challenges to share with you today!

First up is Workout #66 at ScrapFIT. I'm so excited about this one because it's a color palette challenge. Our amazing Creative Trainer Diana has created this beautiful color scheme for you. Use it as your inspiration!

Here is what I came up with. I find that when working with specific color schemes, most times I don't have the "perfect" papers to go with it. So I grab a white sheet of cardstock and start misting or painting to make my own "matching paper." Once I had my beige, green & red start on my background, I went on a stash search to find patterned papers that were cherry and mint. As you can see, I found random sheets...some old Basic Grey, some Bazzill cardstock and some pieces from a scrap piece that didn't even have the brand strip at the bottom anymore! I was able to use up some old stash for this one.

The prize for this workout is once again sponsored by My Divine Inspiration Etsy Shop. Check out this adorable set of handmade embellishments you can win!

If you'd like to see what the other team members created with this pretty color scheme, head on over to the blog! We can't wait to see what you create :)

Next up, I want to share with you my latest layout for Challenge #21 at Challenge Me Happy. The challenge is to use this beautiful photo as your inspiration:

You know me...I just LOVE bright and bold colors! This one was right up my alley. I used the bright colors (of course) and also tied in some of the square shapes of the pillows. I used some papers from a big stack of Me & My Big Ideas papers...and old stack from a few years back. I just love going through my old papers and finding just the right ones :)

I was also inspired by this awesome sketch by Liz at The Scrappiest:

My Little Shoebox is once again sponsoring us this month, so you don't want to miss out on the chance from some of their awesome goodies!

Be sure to go check out what the other team members created!

That's it for today...hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
