GASP..do not adjust your monitors...yes this is really a purple layout!! Something that you will rarely see from me and something I never think to make on my own. For those of you who don't know, I have a long standing dislike of purple and find it very hard, almost impossible to work with. It's fine when other people have purple layouts, it's just not something I like to do. I have worked with it occasionally but that is simply because I have a little girl and it is unavoidable at times. So, my scrappy pals at Paws on Scrapbooking issued a very personal challenge to me... Scrap a purple layout without any flowers!! Thank God that I had this polka dot texture Bazzill in a paper pack b/c it made the job a little easier. I just love this cool texture. I painted the background to matte the photo and also to show off the texture. I actually found it easier to work with the purple then the no using flowers rule. Overall I am quite pleased with how it turned out...not that I am likely to start churning at purple layouts anytime soon LOL.
