Explore Spruce Tree House Layout

Gotta confess, my first instinct with this layout was to keep to a totally neutral palette of tans and browns, but I found a fun color dare that encouraged me to add the CTMH colors of Pomegranate and Fern, and I love how it turned out! Sometimes it pays to take a risk, right? I kept the layout pretty simple since I have lots of other Mesa Verde photos to scrap and wanted to keep things moving!
Recipe:
A Typeface stamp set
Paper Fundamentals Basics & Enchantment Assortments
Pomegranate, Cashmere cardstock
Pomegranate, Fern & Cashmere ink
Colonial White brads
Fern thick twine
Cricut Artistry cartridge: arrows
Cricut Artbooking cartridge: Explore
Pattern: EMS Sketch challenge 44
Challenges: Color My Heart Color Dare #225; Lasting Memories Buttons, Bling & Brads challenge (obviously I went with brads)

Love the layout. Sometimes less is more and seems less distracting from the photos - they are why we scrapbook, right?! Thanks for sharing at the Color My Heart Color Dare.
