Color Combos Galore Layout

It's another freezing cold day here in Dundee, apparently there is snow in surrounding towns again. I don't ever remember getting snow twice in a season before!!

Anyway, moving on!! I have been a member at Color Combos Galore for quite some time, but I have yet to do a layout based on one of their lovely palettes. My fellow scrapper Helen Tilbury is on the DT at Color Combos, and I have seen some of her lovely layouts, and have been inspired. Here is this weeks inspiration board, gorgeous hey!?!

And here is what I came up with:

(Sorry about the quality of my photos, it's a very dull day today!)

I used an older sketch from Let's Scrap for my page, it's # 4-14-10.

~ P.P. - Prima 6 x 6 Paper Pad - Reflections
~ Chipboard stickers & RC letter stickers- BG
~ "Cars" cut with my Slice using the Home Sweet Home Design Card
~ Martha Stewart deep edge punch
~ Nestablities Dies by Spellbinder
~ Clear tickets came with my Noel Mignon kit
~ Fiskars border punch

I must also mention that I finally made it to 200 Followers!!! I am really happy about this and wanted to say "thanks" and "hi" to my new Followers, I am so glad you added your name to my list.

Speak to you soon,
