A2Z Scraplets April Colour Challenge

Good morning everyone! Well this month I wanted to shake it up a bit and offer a Colour Challenge for you all instead of our regular sketch challenges. Below you will see a beautiful palette from and for this challenge, you are required to create a layout or card using the colours from this palette only! You can add some neutral colouring like white, black & kraft but we should be able to see all these beautiful colours in your project.

As per usual there is the opportunity to win 1 of 3 fabulous A2Z Scraplets Goody Packs and you have to be in it to win it! There is a linky widget on the right side of the A2Z Scraplets Blog. Be sure to add your link to your layout there. 

Since bringing the fabulous A2Z Scraplets blog over from Typepad to Blogger, we have had a drastic drop in Challenge entries and this unfortunately means that these challenges may soon end if there is no longer an interest in them. Because I need your help to get this party started once again, I have on offer an AMAZING pack of brand new A2Z Scraplets valued at over $25 to send out to one lucky blog follower and it is so easy to enter! YES this is on top of the fabulous challenge prizes up for grabs! To enter in my super awesome personal giveaway that Julie doesn't even know about so shhhhh LOL all you have to do is spread the love! I want you all to spread the A2Z Scraplets love far and wide to all your Scrappy Friends and make sure that they comment here on the A2Z Scraplets blog saying that YOU sent them there. They will also need to become a follower for the entry to be legitimate and if we get lots and lots of new love I might just think about a second personal giveaway! You will have the entire month of April for this and be sure to let your friends know that of course they can enter too! 

Okie Dokie ladies and gents, after all that excitement here is my example layout with a couple of closeups.

I have used the gorgeous Follow Your Heart Collection from My Minds Eye designed by Rhonna Farrer. Oh my gosh I am in love with this entire collection and I want to use it for every single layout because every piece of the collection is exquisite! Now of course I have always been a HUGE fan of Rhonna's. I own every single on of her Digital Collections as well as her 100 Creative Exercises is my mojo in jar but this collection designed for My Minds Eye is definately my favourite so far from Rhonna and I cannot wait for her to keep WOWing me over and over again in the future.

The Adorable Chipboard title is of course an A2Z Scraplets piece that I have simply inked with Pale Pink Chalk Fluid Ink and then I have stamped over the top with a Linen Background Stamp from Stampin Up. The texture is not as visible in the photo as it is real life but it is a nice subtle effect that looks like fabric I love it!

To bring more of the pink tones in the palette I misted the background paper with a little Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels and this of course added that shimmer that every single project by me simply must have LOL

Lastly I added some Paper Strips curled up  to create little ruffled banners. I have actually stapled these down since taking this photo and they look even cuter if possible!

Thanks so much for looking and don't forget to head on over to to become a follower and get into the draw to win one of 4 huge prize giveaways this month!

Until next time....happy scrapping!
