Color Combo Blog Hop

Welcome to the Color Combo Blog Hop where a few of us from Shimelle's Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers class have joined together to scrap! This is the first I've scrapbooked in almost a year...can you believe it? It felt so good to get back into it again. I have way too many stories waiting to be documented like this.


If you arrived from Sara's blog over at 1200somesmiles then you are in the right place. If you are here and didn't come from the previous blog, I have a complete blog hop list down below.

Our color inspiration,

My 2-page layout,



Further inspiration was taken from the box of our game of Life!

My DD1 got this fun game for her birthday last year. We love to play games together, especially on cold winter evenings. DD2 is often the one to bring us together, asking "Mommy, (or Daddy) can we play games tonight?" This game took us two nights to play, and even then I'm pretty sure we took some shortcuts!

Supplies used:
small and large corner rounders
DP from SU Designer Series Paper (yellow stripe), Marcella by K (turquoise wavy stripe)
curved arrows, Sizzlits Curves Ahead die
puffy letters, Rootbeer Float Thickers adhesive letters (American Crafts)
black letters, Creative Imaginations David Walker "Basic"
Font for journaling, Ali Edwards
white gel pen
SU cardstock, real red, only orange, green galore and pacific point
The road sign arrows I made myself!

Great layout - I grew up playing the Life game and we enjoy it now when my nieces come to visit! I like that you used the colors combo to great a layout about it!

I LOVED the Life game as a girl! I can't wait until our kids are old enough to play. I've been tempted to purchase it too, but am waiting for them to get a little older. Growing up, my Mom used to have game night Sunday nights with popcorn! I want to continue that tradition with my own children! It's still a fond childhood memory of mine!! :)

That is such a good idea to photograph plating a game - This used to be my favourite when I was young - before it was replaced by Trivial Pursuit :0)

Irene said...

We use to play LIFE all the time when I was little. I always ended up having so many kids that I could not fit them in my little car! (:
