A Friday MME Challenge

Happy Friday!

Are you ready for the weekend?  I know we are here. We are finally supposed to get some rain today.  I am so happy!  Our poor lawn is burnt out- my flowers have died, and it is just horribly dry.  I hope we get a soaker today and tomorrow.  fingers crossed!

As I have mentioned I have had some free time this week and have been able to scrap just for me and for fun.  It has been so wonderful.  Whenever I have some free time I love to enter some challenges to get my mojo flowing and I found a really fun challenge over at My Mind's Eye.  The challenge was to create a Monochromatic layout using their products.  Well, I just went to Archivers this week and picked up some of the Indie Chic collection and all the colors are in this gorgeous blue and I had my colors.

For this layout I chose a neutral kraft cardstock as my base and then started layering and adding embellishments in the blue tones.  I love how it turned out.  The photos were taken of Michael on a hike at Cox Arboretum.  I cut the photo frames using my Silhouette

 supplies
cardstock- bazzill
paper, brads, title- my mind's eye
mist- mister huey by studio calico
flair- a flair for buttons

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back soon with a new project.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!

The blue looks wonderful against the kraft, Mary Pat! The circles are a great design element and I love how they carry your eye through the page. P.S. I totally LOL at your comment on my blog today. I know how you feel. I cried when my daughter left on the 1st grade bus (and 2nd and 3rd). By 4th grade I was an old pro (LOL) and used to it. Now that she's going into middle school, I'm anticipating tears again (although I'm not sure I'm still "allowed" at the bus stop, LOL!)

Great layout, love the color scheme and those papers are wow! gorgeous. We had similar weather conditions to yours until a couple of weeks ago and then the rain set in. I think today might be our first day of no rain all day!! Hoping you get a good downpour:)
