Scrapbook your favourite colour

As mentioned this morning, the first challenge is underway…
Colour Challenge #01:
Scrapbook your favourite colour.
{And I mean pretty much any interpretation of ‘scrap’, so blog posts, photographs, paper or digital layouts, movies…anything that documents your favourite colour!}

Here’s what happened when I turned this morning’s post into a layout:
scrapbook page
Supplies: Bazzill Parakeet cardstock, Love, Elsie embossed cardstock and fabric paper, Rhonna Farrer Grunged Photo Edges, American Crafts Thickers in subway black and umbrella green, American Crafts woodgrain paper, Doodlebug flocked dot paper, Fiskars border punch and little letter stickers by My Little Shoebox.

Ready to scrap your favourite colour? Ready to win something?

Scrap your favourite colour and upload it somewhere—your blog, Flickr, your page gallery, wherever works. Comment on this post with a link to your page. You have all month to finish the challenge – entries end at 11:59pm London time on 30th June.

On the first of July, one lucky commenter will win her choice of any online class in the shop.

Happy scrapping!

    Hi Shimelle,
    because my blog’s title is “life is colourful”, I loved to read that the whole month you are dealing with color!

    Do I have a favorite color? No – I love the rainbow of colors. But at the moment I am especially in love with pastel yellow – which is a color I more or less ignored before. And that is what my layout ist about:
    my favorite color this summer:
