Lasting Memories #305 - Hello Beautiful

Hello, hello! Happy Sunday to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend. We had a really nice day yesterday - cool enough we could open the windows and enjoy some fresh air in the house. I'm not sure if we'll get that lucky today, but it was nice while it lasted!

Today is our second challenge in our "Adult Coloring Trend" over at Lasting Memories, and this week's challenge is - "Use black and white and one other color".

This type of color challenge is one of my favorites - I love using black and white with just a pop of color.

For my layout I used this week's Midweek Mojo sketch - Marigold #2 - from Scrapbook Steals. Here's a look at the sketch:

When I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to keep the black and white strips at the top and bottom, so I went in search of a similar paper in my stash. I found a piece from Bella Blvd's Color Chaos that was perfect. In fact, all of the black and white papers - and most of the pink ones - on this layout are from Bella Blvd.

I added in some pink splatters to the background, a couple of pieces of washi tape, some die cut hearts, and finished it off with some enamel dots.

Stop by Lasting Memories to see the layouts from the rest of the design team. I hope you play along with this fun challenge! I would love to see what other color you add to your black and white layout!

And if you need a fun sketch to work with, be sure to stop by the Scrapbook Steals blog and check this one out!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
