Coloring Eggs Layout

I still haven't gotten to Costco to reprint my photos for the EMS Sketch Challenge from Monday, so here's something else I have been working on. When I saw these pictures, I really wanted to use the color Watermelon for the layout, as I did on this layout, but I just didn't have enough patterned papers to make it work. So Hollyhock was a nice substitute, which brought me to the Boom-di-Ada paper pack. Because of its great color scheme, Boom-di-Ada is such a versatile paper pack. For example, I added a Goldrush B&T from the Splendor paper pack and it gave a lighter, fun look to the design. My design inspiration came from a Becky Higgins' sketch. FYI: When I scanned the layout, the colors didn't come out quite right; the green of the background should be less yellow, but hopefully you get the picture!
