I like a little purple in my diet CR84FN 48

Today's challenge is to use purple, chartreuse, and grey. What a grand color combination. It sorts of evokes the feeling of tranquility.

My layout features lovely flocked paper by recollections!  I love this paper.  Actually the whole pad of paper was fantastic. I made paper roses from a sheet of scrap paper that I had distressed.

The photos show are little walk from Union Station to Busch Stadium in St. Louis on a gorgeous sunny day.  I love all of these photos, they provide great memories for me because this day was PERFECT!

Thinking of you card #2
This card was made because I had papers left and I am NOT adding to my scrapbin right now, only taking from it.  So I had no choice but to use all the papers.  The papers are the same as listed above the only new product used here is the flower stamp which is by Heidi Grace and the trim which is by Westrim Crafts.

Thank you card

I wish I knew who made the Thanks stamp, I picked it up somewhere, if you know please tell me.  All papers are the same (again these are left overs).  New products used is a buckle by JoAnn's, purple ribbon from a package I received once, and green ribbon from a Sam's scrapbook basket. 

This was a fun challenge. If you are into challenges I suggest you try CR84FN.  A new exciting bundle of fun every two weeks.
