    I tend to be drawn to bright colors (orange is my absolute fave) because it lifts my spirits!

    The colors of key lime paired with a pink, the energetic purple of my amethyst in my engagement ring, the yellows of lemons, the shimmering aqua that reflects into my kitchen from my pool in the summer, coffee-bean brown, and the contrast of the burned-brown against the white of a marshmallow for som’mores. Love the yellow that Linda Beeson used in her layout and the blue in Debbie’s.

    I love rainbows and bright colors. I also love black and white or gray paired with bright colors because they really pop. The “ema” layout just makes me feel good!

    Our entire lives are inspired by color – outdoor colors, indoor colors, the color of our clothing, the colors we use to create – the fabric of our lives is all about color. Love this new line by Stacy Julian and I love the layouts using her new happy colors!

    Colors can inspire us in all sorts of ways! My bedroom is a light blue because I find it relaxing and restful. My scrap room is a pale green because I find it inspires my creativity. Lastly, my kitchen is RED because it gets me moving!
