Once You Find Your Path – Shimelle’s Weekend Crop Challenge No 4

This was the last challenge I had time to finish during the weekend, and this was for Shimelle’s Weekend Crop Challenge No 4: Colour Adventure – Scrap with grey, yellow and one other colour of your choice.

Which turned out to be a complete nightmare! Except some yellow card stock I couldn’t hardly find ANYTHING YELLOW IN MY STASH. I just don’t do yellow, it’s a childhood trauma thing, so of course I don’t shop for many scrapbook related things that are yellow either. I’m sure if I could find a photo of myself as a kid in a yellow turtle neck, I could scrapbook it and write up a heck of a story for the journaling, but there wouldn’t be much else yellow on that page.

So, I opted out for the yellow card stock, it was just way to intimidating, but in the end I found these old Basic Grey alphabet chipboard stickers, and, bless’em, some Sassafras Lass stickers that worked. It’s not very visible on the photo below, but the third colour of choice got to be blue. Here’s my page:

These are photos from Port Ellen, Islay, from the morning when we are leaving. We were waiting for the ferry, and I took one last stroll and took some photos. Spending time on Islay is one of the best times I’ve ever had on any vacation. It’s hard to explain, but that place just made me so relaxed and content. These are sort of my goodbye photos from there.

  1. This has got to be one of my favorite pages from Shimelle’s challenges. Seriously. You rocked the challenge. You rocked the photography. The pops of yellow are unexpected yet fit the page. So well done. Have you ever tried submitting your pages for publication??
