Wedding dresses and flowers

Who would ever think that wedding dresses and flowers could work for October? But, with warm beautiful colors like these they fit perfectly. For this color inspiration I asked Megan and Kay to create a layout with it and wow... they went above and beyond. Up first we have...


Sometimes I start with an inspiration piece and even though it gives me a creative jump start, it often takes off in a completely different direction.

The color orange is what jumped out at me first and of course with it being October, I thought pumpkins! So, I pulled a photo from one of our past trips to our favorite pumpkin patch and began the creative process.

When I'm trying to stick to a specific color combination, I love to pull out my scrap drawer and grab those certain colors. It doesn't matter the theme of the paper or the design, we're strickly looking for color here. Sometimes going outside of the box is fun, ya know?
So here's what I came up with...


{Remember at the beginning I was talking about taking that inspiration in a completely different direction? Well, I ended up swapping out the green for a turquoise and that's okay! It's all about the creative jump start!}
I'm also one who very rarely throws away any scraps. I try to keep everything incase I can possibly reuse it later. Like this piece of the chipboard here...



It was originally from the RV There Yet - Layered Chipboard Stickers - The Great Outdoors Collection by Heather Tozzi. I had used the bottom half on a past layout. So save those pieces, you just never know when you might use them!
Woodgrain Alphabet Chipboard Stickers - The Great Outdoors Collection by Heather Tozzi
may be my all time favorites! Woodgrain....swoon!


Where does your inspiration take you? Are you one to stick strictly to the theme & colors or do you find yourself heading in a different direction at times?
Happy Creating!

And here is Kay's beautiful:

I am in love with grey, and with these colors? SWOON-WORTHY. Here is my page:


Papers and embellies are from GCD Studios- From the Soul Food line; Soul Petit Orange Paper; Funky Soul Paper; Beautiful Soul Paper; Transparent Shapes; From Homespun Chic; Die Cut Borders; Homespun Mod Flocking Paper


I love how they made these colors so light and airy and I love how they can work for Halloween theme or a girlie theme. We hope you enjoy this fun and fresh color combo this week.
