One thing I am really drawn to are bright colors in patterned papers and embellishments. That's one of the many reasons why I was really drawn to the My Little Shoebox side of this month's kit. Even though I didn't have any pictures that went with the Asian theme of the paper, I had fun playing with the bright colors. I even got the chance to spritz some of my bright orange Maya Mist to bring out the orange in the embellishments.
The two layouts I made are of my niece and nephew with my Grammy (their Great Grammy)...such wonderful memories that are now captured and will be available to Addy and Evan as they get older (one of the many rewards of scrapbooking)!
