Tuesdays With The Team | May 14

It's my turn up to bat on the Canadian Scrapbook blog (check it out here) and I'm issuing a colour challenge, inspired by a piece of graffiti art I found online:

It was a perfect match for one of my favourite lines from Fancy Pants Designs, Park Bench!  Here's a double page layout (?!? I know, right?? Another double pager!!) that I created at CropFest a few weekends ago:

Supply List:  Core’dinations and Bazzill cardstock; Fancy Pants corrugated and patterned paper, stickers, felt flowers, chipboard, buttons and pin; Martha Stewart Crafts border punch; Sizzix BigKick; Cheery Lynn Designs die; Maya Road trinket pin; The Twinery twine; Basic Grey letter stickers; Papermate Flair pen; Prima paper flower.

I found these photos while I was browsing through some old disks from 2005 - back when these two actually got along... LOL!

Journaling reads:  You were both so affectionate to each other when you were younger.  Nowadays, during the bickering and grumbling, I long for these younger days!

Here's page one:

Haha - I love that photo of Aili!! I had forgotten how expressive she was (and still is!)

Here's the second page:

One of the girls at CropFest commented about how I always seemed to "rock" the clusters on my layouts - and to be truthful, I just keep moving stuff around until it looks right!  And sometimes, even then, I don't know when to stop... LOL!

A couple of the flowers in the pack didn't jive with the paper as much as I'd like - I have a problem with needing everything matchy-matchy - so I ripped them apart and included some paper flowers that I had in my stash:

If you play along with this colour challenge, please share a link on the Canadian Scrapbooker blog - I'd love to see what you create!
