To Inspire

Why hello there.
This week Joy and I are taking over the Studio Blog.
Our mission: to fill your week with inspirational challenges, photos, scrappers and websites.
Let's begin with a challenge, shall we?
This week on the Dares blog, the ladies have decided to challenge your scrap minds with the use of color. Take the Dare as you wish. I personally have chosen a color that I do not

often use and find particularly hard to scrap and that's the color red.
Here's my interpretation of the Dare:


Most paper peices are from past Studio Calico kits. A great way to use up that stash!
Oh and there is a little incentive.......we're giving away an October Studio Calico kit!
Please post your color Dare in the member gallery and link it to the Dares blog.
We'll pick a winner on Friday, the 17th.


Hope to see you tonight!
You didn't forget did you? :)
Tina



Don't forget to post to win this RAK. Just tell us your favorite color for a chance to win this fabulous giveaway from The Paper Pixie.


******

This is Joy. Tina told me that the Dare was about color, and I immediately thought of this photo with this color combo by the FABU Elsie Flannigan.

I love the colors in this photo, so different and it immediately makes think of fall.

Here's the layout it inspired.
