April week 3- Monochromatic page

A Monochromatic page – Do a layout using different shades of the same color. Example: baby blue, sky blue, navy blue and midnight blue. You can use one neutral color (white or brown or black). No other colors are allowed.

Here's my take on the monochromatic challenge. I did use brown as my neutral. This page is of my husbands paternal grandmother (Megans Great Grandmother). I think she was beautiful.

The papers are from SandyLion , Stampin'up and Walmart. The ribbons are Fancy Pants, flowers are Bazzill, Thickers from American Crafts, and the buttons are from my Grandmas sewing stash.

I will put the journaling in the folder after I get done with my genology reasearch on Hubbies ansestors.

With the scraps from my lo I did another 6x6 for my "100 things I Love" album (remember the Peeps Bunny page). This photo was taken at my grandmothers house. They tell me I was telling my little cousin why she would need a purse when she got big like me.


  1. Love those colors together! Beautiful pages and love the pic of you when you were little. Did you add the color to it? Love that!!!

  2. Love the color comb and that paper is fabulous!

  3. In the pic of ne, I add color to my cousins barett, my socks and undies. I always want to try that and yesterday I finally did.

    I forgot to mention how cool I thought that laser cut paper is. It's beautiful as a whole sheet but a little pain when you start cutting it, still I would use it again.

  4. ooh i love your color combo & the thickers are perfect!!

    Did you make the laser cut paper??? It's cool!

  5. I love the Bertha page - very pretty. I also love the page with pic of you when you were little - how adorable. And your journaling for that page is perfect!!

  6. To answer Christians question: I purchased the laser cut paper at Ben Franklin. I wish I knew how to get my Cricut to cut paper like that. I did cut a 5x5 square out of it behind the large photo, I do that a lot if its the only sheet I have and I have another project I would like to use it on.
