Splash of colour

I am so excited...toady's post has been on my bench for a couple of days and i keep looking at it and smiling, in this otherwise dull dreary weather a splash of colour makes me happy!

This is my entry in the cas-ualfridays challenge cfc#7 . This week the challenge is to use colour blocking.
I checked in with the who's who's over at the blog to see if i could do a scrapbook layout , I was ever so excited to find out i could.

Michele Gross's card inspired me, I love her work and I must say she leaves the nicest comments on peoples blogs, you can see her card here. I loved how she graduated the colours.

Here is my take on colour blocking. ......  or in my case colour shards.

This is a photo of my little girl when she was just 6 months old. The photo had so many colours in it, that it was hard to pick a colour to work in , so this worked great, i cut shards of cardstock in lots of colours trying to get them to blend to the colour next to it. Matted the photo in neutral colours and then punched out the butterfly's along the edge.

I had a restless night last night after posting the layout yesterday for the sassy lill sketches , things just didn't seem right' so first thing this morning i got up and changed a few things.....i am updating the post so i would love everyone to pop back and see what i did...let me know if you like the changes!
