the new color palette from the color room 
this is what i created

a long while ago my sister in law *macy* asked if i would make a scrapbook with her childhood pictures
the overwhelming amount of pictures has made this task somewhat of an undertaking.. and that's putting in mildly! :) then her family went through a devastating tornado that hit Oklahoma and they lost everything - including all her childhood pictures! the only ones she has left are the ones she gave me to scrap. 
suddenly it became personal and i understood the priceless memories these pictures held for her and her family. 
enter the color room; when i sat down to create this weeks layout i had a thought... what if i created a layout every week using the color room as my spring board for inspiration.. that way its not 300,000,000,000+ pictures.. its just 1 layout a week.. that seems manageable!

i wasn't really going to show the pages i created for macy's book because i know she *you* read my blog so faithfully.. but maybe its something you can look forward to everyweek.. instead of just receiving it in about 20 years when i'm finally done! :) haha!

hope you like it macy!
love you and you're family!

  1. OH!! I love it!! The colors fit so well with that whole picture! You're genius!

    That's a great idea! It's always more motivating to work on something when you get to show it off! That's what I'm learning as I scan in this mountain of pictures...if I share them online, it's like immediate gratification for my work.

    Even if you show me sneak peeks of each layout, I know it will still take my breath away to see them in person!!

    Thank you times a million for doing this!

  2. yay! so happy you like the layout and the idea! the snippet idea is fantastic!! maybe i'll do that if its not from the color room.. but just a random page.. how funner!
