Buddies - LM #548 - Color Inspiration #3

 Hello, everyone! Good Sunday morning to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend. It's been so rainy and cool around here lately and I'm ready for the rain and cool temperatures to give way to sunshine and warm temperatures! We haven't even had a chance to get our pool up and going yet and we were already swimming in it this time last year. I'm sure it will warm up soon...I just need to be patient!

Today I am sharing the layout that I created for this week's challenge at Lasting Memories. This week we have a beautiful color combo, courtesy of DT member Maureen:

When I saw the colors I knew I would be making a layout of one of my boys with Echo Park's Little Dreamer - Boy - collection. The colors in this collection are a little darker, but they were perfect for this photo of Shane and his grandpa from 2006:

I think Shane loved it when Matthew would have a baseball game because that meant he got to see his grandpa. There was usually a bit of rowdiness with these two, and lots of hugs and kisses. They have a very special bond and I think you can see that in this photo.

Here is a close up:

I fussy cut one of the 'you are my favorite' speech bubbles and popped it up with foam tape and added it back on top of the same speech bubble on the paper.  

Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories blog to see how the rest of the design team took on this color inspiration challenge. I hope you have some time to play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a great day!
