Brought to you by Scrapbook and Cards Today
Okay okay. I guess I can not just simply post the Scrapbook and Cards Today August Colour Challenge for you to do.  I suppose I will play along too.  Oh oh, don't twist my arm. 
But seriously, I have been sharing the monthly colour challenges, and while I love looking at them I hadn't had the guts to try to make something with the colours that they had put together.
I am getting braver! That is a good thing. 
And I think I picked a good month to start because these are my kind of colours. I gotta have the neutrals but I like the pop of the pool party, pacific point, and gumball green. 
I was all set to go down to my idea studio to make a card (which seems to be a new usual for me) but instead I opened up the new My Digital Studio 2 to play (oh what fun it is) and here is what I created.  

I really like the Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper and can really see how versatile it will be throughout the year, so that was where I started.  I also have seen a ton of cute projects with hexagons and wanted to try it out. The rest just kind of came together.  The pictures are of our family friend Anne who visited us last summer from Finland. She really enjoys art and I hope that she would like this page. 
What do you think of my first attempt at the Colour Challenge?

Amanda, I love your scrapbook page and how you incorporated the hexagons into the design. Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew.

Thanks for your comment Pam. I feel bad not mentioning the Paper Craft Crew in the post :S. I decided that since I had already made this page (and it fit so nicely with the layout challenge) that I would post it anyways with the thought that I may still have time to do a traditional page and would mention you in that post. I look forward to playing along much more :)
