Happy New Year!

Before I go on with my regular posting, I just want to take a minute to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. Whether you are sadly waving goodbye to 2008 or kicking its butt right out the door, remember that life is what you make it. From all experiences, good or bad, take something with you. I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason, and we often do not see that reason until a ways down the road...but it is there. So, do the best to enjoy this life and everything that it has to offer. God Bless.

Okay, so back to some scrappy stuff.......I have the pleasure this week of being the guest designer for Color Combos Galore. For those of you who may not be familiar with the site, they do weekly challenges using specific color combinations. Their design team and a guest designer create layouts with the color scheme of the week, and then anyone who wants to can join in by creating a layout with the same color palette.

I chose Blue Lagoon and Lemon Twist as my colors this week. They tossed in firebrick red and chocolate brown. Here is the palette:

I really like the dark brown with the blue and yellow. And the red just brightens the whole palette up! Here's the layout that I came up with. If you'd like to join in, you can link your layout to the thread at Two Peas. It was a fun challenge to do, and it's a great excuse to scrap if you have not had the chance with the holiday rush! Not to mention, you could win a fun RAK!! Happy Scrapping and Happy New Year!!
