Color Challenge #7

It has taken me seven weeks, but I have finally met a challenge on the Designing with Color blog. Jackie challenged scrappers to use a neutral background with some colour (see, I spelled it the Canadian way just for this...) in elements. You can see the challenge here. I use neutral backgrounds alot, so I decided to do something I rarely do... use color for my text!

I was feeling sentimental when I did the layout, so I pulled out an older photo. See, lately Jacob has been ducking kisses and turning his back on hugs. *sigh* Then last night at movie night for his school, he was doing the distance thing... you know, so as not to be seen with his Mom and Dad? I knew the time would come, but I did think I had a little longer to prepare - like at least 8 years old.

Supplies:
Paper: Chatterbox
Tape: Heidi Swapp
Stars: Paper Source
Fonts: Frutiger & Jailbird Jen
Tasty Tattoos (Thanks Cheryl for the link)
Sequins

I LOVE the design of this Jen - and nice spelljob girl ;) The title block looks amazing! My Jacob pulls the too cool for his parents thing a little bit lately too. So I make sure to give him lots of hugs and kisses when I can catch up to him ;)
