Happy July & Little Yellow Bicycle HOF Challenge

This month, the HOF girls and I used the product we received in our prize package from Little Yellow Bicycle. The line that we received was the Delightful Collection by Sharon Ann, which has great color combos of pinks, blues, oranges, and greens. I had some wonderful pictures of my niece, Emily, that I really thought would work well with this line. Since I do not often work with such a girly color palette, I was worried that I would not be able to pull it off or that things would not "pop", but just kind of blend in together. So, to solve my problem, I combined the girly colors of the patterned papers with black. I know, it might sound a bit odd, but I really think it turned out nice.

I often get on these tangents where I seems to pull toward a certain product or technique. For some reason, it just happens. I think I mentioned that before. Anyway, I am on a bead kick right now. I have this very strong urge to make jewelery, and I spend so much time in craft stores admiring the beads and jewels. Since I really have no idea how to make jewelery, I have been buying beads for my scrapbook pages. It has really been fun, and I love how my pages turn out.

You can see this page and other pages by the 2008 HOF game girls by checking out the CK gallery, and you can join along in the challenge to win a prize from CK on the CK message board! I'd love to see some pages with this LYB line or any of their other awesome lines! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
