Summer of Color Meets Book of Days...

Week three of Summer of Color was extra fun for me because it was such a challenge.  My usual colors are BRIGHT BRIGHT BRIGHT, and this scheme is pretty muted.  The colors are

Lavender, Grey and a Splash of Plum.

I decided to use these colors on this week's Book of Days workshop spread.  We are exploring the concept of home.  Here's what I came up with...
As you can see I used more than a splash of plum - ha.  Like half the page. :)   And I also broke the rules by adding a little yellow and hot pink in the house, but hey, I'm looking at it as a jumping off point more than strict rules, know what I mean?

If you want to play along, head over to the Summer of Color blog here!

Thanks so much for visiting today!  I appreciate you!
