I have always loved yellow + green

So, every Friday on the I Love Color blog, I post a color combination to inspire some weekend creativity.
I started this layout last Saturday and finished it Sunday night.
When you take my weekly challenge, you can post your work in the I Love Color Flickr gallery.

One card, page or project posted will receive a happy mail package of FREE cardstock.

Here’s the funny thing.
I took these photos in the spring of 2005. My plan was to use them on a layout for my book, The Big Picture.
I recently found them (again) behind the spring tab in my Things We Do category drawer. We’ve had a  particularly warm winter and I’m especially anxious for spring. When I decided to take my own I Love Color challenge to use yellow + green, I wondered what, if anything I had behind the spring tab.

I love my category drawers.

I took the “Even Better” challenge and sewed my buttons on with thread. I love the difference this detail makes.

I also love Core’dinations cardstock and owe them a big shout out (thank YOU) for sponsoring the weekly color combination challenge. By the way, I used the green/sparkle embossed cardstock in the New Jilli-Bean Soup collection. Here’s a link for purchase at Scrapbook.com.

p.s. I am the guest post on Ali Edward’s blog today.
Go read and tell me what you think, here or there!


  1. I loved the guest post. Very cool analogy and so true. I am trying to make that transition to the last stage, I am still searching for my authentic voice.

  2. I love your layout, but couldn’t find the embossed paper on core’dinations cardstock website. What collection is it in? Thanks for being so inspiring on so many topics I find interesting–self improvement, motherhood and scrapping at the top of the list!

    • merig,
      I just added a link to the Jilli-Bean Soup collection of embossed cardstock at Scrapbook.com

      Hope this enables a purchase *wink*

  3. I throughly enjoyed the post on Ali Edwards. What a fun connection to make. It has been intriguing me for two days, and now my own juices are running with new ideas. I now have my own cat. drawers thanks to my LOM class. I am off to make some new connections of my own during my “break week”. Thanks

  4. You are a woman after my own heart! I also love love love green. I have been known to dress myself and my son in head-to-toe green without even realizing that we are all matchy-matchy, for the simple reason that we just have so much of it!

    Love it!
