Challenge #34

Lots of activity in the house this week... I've been working on the spring cleaning.  We've lived in this house almost a year, and I'm finally getting a feeling for what I want to do in each of the rooms.  It really takes me this long to see how we are going to use the rooms.  I picked out paint colors before we moved in because my husband wanted it professionally painted.  I gave him a hard time because I'm the painter and I like to decorate one room at a time, but overall I'm please with the colors.  I'm going to need to make a couple tweaks later on down the road.

Color really is my thing.  I love putting together colors that most are afraid to decorate with.  I always say, "color on the walls is the cheapest thing to change."  I think that is why scrapbooking is such a passion for me (and my paper collection is on the verge of hoarding).

Speaking of color...  check out the next challenge.  At least it was for me!  But, on the other hand, it really reminds me of Spring!

The Twist this time around is:
Use Tags and/or Stitching
This month around we are happy to have Andrea Eason as a guest designer at Color Me Scrappy.
Our DT really did a great job with this one!  Check out what they did and stop by their own personal blogs to see some close-up shots and the stories behind their pages.  Each member of the DT puts their hearts and souls into each page hoping to inspire YOU.








Our prize this month is a mystery bag.  It is full of Lisa and Pam's favorites!  I can't tell you what is in it, but I will tell you it is full of goodness!  It has a little of this and a little of that!  You'll want in on this one!

Challenge #33

Challenge #33 marks the beginning of the new design team's term!  Please join me in welcoming the talented ladies to the team!  We're sure that you'll be inspired by everything that they create.

Also, don't forget that we've made a few changes to the format again.  Being in our first year, we're still working out the kinks.  Color Me Scrappy is going back to reveals on the 1st and 15th of each month.  Some of our participants found it confusing to keep track of overlapping challenges, so we've returned to simpler times.  We hope you understand and embrace these changes!  If you've got questions, please don't hesitate to ask, we're here to help!

Let's talk prizes:  This month we've got a mystery bag up for grabs!  Play along in both challenges for 2 chances to win!

We're LOVING this bright, fun palette ... think spring ladies!

The Twist:  Use this sketch by Christina Collins
