Design Your Life color inspiration project

We're starting the third week of the Design You Life class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Hard to imagine a person could have so much fun taking a class with 1700 people!

This simple project features the inspiration colors of pink, orange, and brown. I mounted the 8x8 pages on 12x12 cardstock. Again, I would not normally do this but I'm not mixing sizes in the albums I have underway right now. When I switch to 3-ring binders (hopefully soon!) I definitely plan to mix page sizes.

The poem on the left is one I wrote awhile back and posted on my blog here. When I started my blog a couple of years ago, I had hoped to use a lot of my posts on layouts, and I really like it when I can actually do that.

Notice the very old product on this layout -- hoarded Scrapworks paper and Heidi Swapp patterned tape! It's great to use up some of this stuff.

Great kitty page! I'm very partial to pink pages in general, but used in conjunction with kitties, it's just way too cool!

Great idea to use your 8 x 8 pages mounted on 12 x 12. I love to do 8 x 8 pages, so may have to try this trick. Love your kitty pages. I have two myself and they are so fun to have. Thanks for sharing.

Old product=great pages in this case! I really like how you put the 8 x 8s on the 12 x 12 backgrounds and made it look like you PLANNED it that way to begin with. When I have done this for similar reasons, it always looks contrived. I'll make you help me next time;)
