We are focusing on the color RED for week one. Here's my two 6x6 pages. Nic has provided a printable for the right hand page, and I have decided to choose a photo of me and Robbie wearing that color for each of the left hand pages.
For the Build It Layout, I decided to do a layout about our home state, Texas. This past summer as we traveled I took some photos that I thought were distinctly Texas: the Texas flag flying below the American flag, cows in a field, an oil well, and some red, white & blue chairs in a Dairy Queen in some small town near the Panhandle. I also went back and pulled a photo from several years ago when we visited the Alamo and another of a field of bluebonnets. I started with a base of white cardstock and added two strips of Reminisce Passports Collection Texas patterned paper.I used a couple of old Stickopotamus stickers, some foam letters, and Spare Parts flowers with gem brads from Stampin' Up. The thin ribbon with stars is some very old RIBN-TAYP that I purchased from an elderly seamstress at a garage sale.
I actually used more red in my layout than Nic recommended since she likes to use red as an accent color and to add an extra "pop" to a page. I am pleased with the way this layout looks and enjoyed having a red day today!
