Orlando Layout

Sketch 'n Scrap had a new sketch I wanted to try, so I pulled out some of my Laughing Lola paper to create one last layout for my family's 2010 Orlando trip, an intro page for our vacation. The pretty blue in the papers seemed a good match for the shade of the water in my pool photo, so I think the papers work even though there's no purple in either photo! I'm trying to loosen up on the matchy-matchy thing (since everyone tells me my colors don't have to match exactly), but it's always a struggle for me to try something new. Anyone else have this issue?

I think the colors are great on this layout! I used to struggle with that as well, but now I really think using colors that are more complimentary vs a perfect match are more striking, but it took me months of doing it to like it! lol! So keep trying you will finally get to like it! Thanks for joining us at Sketch N Scrap!

Hi Cheryl, I love your intro page and what beautiful papers! You have certainly matched them well with the photo's, I always think that as long as one of the colours in the photo is in the papers it will be fine. Thanks for sharing your fun page with us at Sketch N Scrap. xx
