I did another quicky!!!

and another Shimelle challenge, I haven't done them all, or as many as I had hoped i would but i have had other things going on, so I'm pleased with the few that I have managed to achieve. 

the criteria for this one was to use bold patterns or colours on the page. 
I was going to follow the scrap lift page provided, I found 2 photos that would have worked, (kind of) but as usual i had to change it up a little.
I knew which paper i was going to use as soon as I chose my photographs. I knew in my paper stash that I had cowboy paper, from one of the DCWV paper stacks, so I searched my box for these.

they are NOT my usual style and I wouldn't normally choose to scrap with this style of paper but the photos screamed for them so here it is:

EEEEKKK!!!! I used THEMED papers!!!!
I NEVER do this, but thought I could try and tone it down a bit, Im not sure I achieved toned down, with bright orange mats but I quite like it.
It took me a while to like it tho, It wasn't until i added the maya road kraft journalling spots that I thought actually its not too bad.... before that it wasn't looking so appealing.

anyways, I'm a bit cold and it getting past my bed time :) 

so will call it a day and hopefully do more of the challenges tomorrow. 

oops best link you up before I forget!!!
