2SF Online Crop - Shelby's Challenge - Green with Envy

Shelby provided the Green with Envy challenge for the 2SF Burst of Color online crop over at their forum.

Right away I groaned. Green is sooo not my color. I have some specific colors of green that I like, and I have 2 green sweaters, but thats about it for me and green.

So I whined.

Then I forced myself to just get it over with as then I could have fun doing the other colored challenges I liked so much better.

So there was no sun yesterday here, so the photo above is a little screwed up. The colors are actually what you see in the photo below - not sure why that one worked out so much better!

I picked the patterned paper because I wanted a pattern (Shelby used one in her preview) and it was the nicest green paper I had. Then I riffled through my photos looking for something that worked with the green - when I came upon Dylan in this orange shirt.

Add a Creative Memories journalling card, two CM photo mats and TA-DA the base layout was complete.

I was originally going to use my blue letters for the whole title, but I didn't have one of the letters for FACE and had already stuck them on. In retrospect, I love the two types of stickers much better anyways because it adds more emphasis to the key word in the title. The "Face" stickers are Rugged from CM.

The "True Story" sticker is also CM. This was really just a CM layout, other than a few letters and the base patterned paper and the Cricut flowers.

All in all a simple layout, but that is what I was going for with this one to emphasize the story.

Hope you enjoy, please comment, and follow!
