Live and Love

I can't say it enough: I love this Kaisercraft paper. Its called Gypsy sisters and the pattern reminds me of something mystical. I love the combination of this purple with the aqua blue they just goes so well together. I really love Kaisercraft papers. I used this beautiful background but I also cut some swirls out of the matching papers and added it to the layout. I recently went on the Kaisercraft blog and found some fun sketch challenges to work with. Below is the sketch challenge and my layout. I also had another sketch by Stuck? sketches that looked so similar in elements that I combined the two sketches together into this layout. This was the first time I 've challenged myself in this way but it came out better than I thought. I also realized that I used the word LOVE again on a layout. Since its such an easy word to use I wanted to uploaded onto the Bird is the word Love Challenge.
Finally I used for the first time a palette from The Color Room. I've never combined their colours on a palette before. I thought it would be fun and I finally put my mind to this challenge. See Palette #72 below.
I can't believe how I challenged myself this time!! I love it!!
