A Scrapbook Page!

Wow, it has been ages since I've made a scrapbook page! This Friday night I'm getting together with a couple friends to scrapbook so I had it on my mind tonight. I've got to start packing up all my stuff and getting it all together!

The kids had gone to bed and I was itching to try out a new color challenge I found tonight. So, out came a scrapbook page!

The colors were based on this challenge found at SPcolorcombos :

The red and green reminded me of some die cut flowers I had from SU that I've been hoarding. I pulled out a few things in these colors, and put together this page. I used my 5 petal flower punch for the centers of the flowers and the smaller ones. I love how simple this is, and that its not an overly "Christmas-y" page.

Oh also, this is page number 99 for the year! I have totally fallen short of my ginormous goal (365 pages for the year), but I'm ok with that. I'm just so happy I have gotten so much done this year! ;) Really, I could look at it that I've done a page a week and have passed that number, hehe!

CS: SU Decorative paper, Real Red, Old Olive
Misc: Flower die cuts, old olive grosgrain, so saffron grosgrain, 5 petal flower punch, Thickers letters, dmc floss, MS border punch
