Easter Color Blog Hop
Hippity Hop! Welcome to my stop on the Easter Color blog hop!! If you didn’t arrive here from Heather’s blog, then head on over to Jordan’s and hop through! (gotta say, an Easter blog hop is kinda fun, hopping bunnies, hopping blogs. Oy, I’m a bit silly today. Not sure if that’s too much, or not enough coffee…I can’t remember this morning).
Easter is a time of year we often associate with a variance of colors. Think about all the pretty dyed eggs. Lots of color and creativeness going on. Why not translate that color to scrapbooking!
Pink is one of my favorite colors. And boy was I happy when I had my little girl because I finally was able to embrace pink for a reason! No more being stuck with blue because I was the only girl in my house. It was now an even number. Watch out boys!!!! Pink is a coming!
I’ve been thinking for several weeks on what my page specializing in pink would be. I wanted something magical. Stunning. Spectacular. But all I had was a blank sheet of pink paper. Yes, a piece of pink paper sitting on my scrap table for more than a week. Nothing done. Of all the times to get a road block! Sigh. What’s a pink loving girl, who is feeling the pressure to do.
Why, shake it up and do something different of course. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the passenger seat of our truck lately, and since I had such a creative block with my pink paper, I thought maybe I should try some digital stuff. I pulled out the laptop and went to work. Now, I’m definitely, without a doubt passionate about my paper and glue. That will never change. But there are some times when digital is just awesome. And that is being able to recolor, resize and reuse elements in any way, without costing an arm and leg! Yes, I’m a budget scrapper. I’m not a tight wad (I do like to shop), but I like to make sure that I get the most for my dollar. Sometimes, with paper products, I find myself keeping my pages more simple for cost as well as it being my natural style. So digital scrapbooking gives the freedom for me to put as many layers on my pages as my little hearts content!!
So my captive time in the passenger seat led to a page bursting with layers. Hmmm….maybe I need to do more digital. 0Before anyone thinks anything about digital versus paper, I love to create digital pages that can be completely replicated in paper (and vice versa). It’s scrapbooking at it’s best, what it is really all about, the memories!
Supplies: Pink Paislee (from www.jessicasprague.com), Misc flowers & flourish (HA! How fun to use Pink Paislee products for a pink page….sometimes, I’m just so good! LOL)
Now I ask, what fun is a blog hop without a giveaway? Not so much I’d dare to say.
Just leave a comment telling me how you like to use PINK. I’ll draw a winner on Sunday. Included is some of my favorite pink embellishments. Label stickers from My Minds Eye, buttons, twine & ribbon, glitter glue and a set of stamps.
And now I bid you ado to Tenny, where she had the wonderful color of brown! Hop on over.
