Scrapbook Remix - Part One

Shimelle's new online class started this week and is all about using up patterned papers that we may have a stash of. Well,I certainly do have a few that could be used up...
The first idea is to find some papers that are basically all in the same shades of one colour....
I kind of stuck to it - I had two or three half pages of Dear Lizzie papers and went with those.. I love these photos of Dad last year - he was at our house watching the wedding of  William and Kate sitting with Archie - fond memories indeed. I strayed off colour a bit with the embellishments but - I love the layout- so that's the main thing.
It's getting a bit busy here this evening - I'm off on a weekend retreat tomorrow. I should really be packing totes and mini totes. Photos are all ready,so that's a start!

Here's another little card I made last night ..
Better go and get sorted, I'll try and post a bit from there during the weekend.

I think straying off the colopurs was exactly the right thing to do here. It's lovely!

Really pretty - of course I'd agree that if you only use one color - make it pink! Your card is lovely too. That class sounds like a blast.
