Summer Nights at Lasting memories

 August Challenge theme- Color or coloring
This weeks challenge is to use the photo for color inspiration.

If you've missed the last few weeks like myself.  You can find the other weekly challenges in the side bar at Lasting memories.  I've been just keeping up with LMDT assignments as my last few weeks have been crazy busy with scouts.  In the last few days I have slept in my own bed one night with an Adult Girl scout Trainer Training weekend, over night break then off to Cub Resident camp for three days.  Still can't believe that I have provided 63.5 hours of training to other adult leaders.


 For my Layout I choose the photos from the color selection as you can see the deep pinks in my daughters dress.  I also wanted to go with more of the color scheme from the photo but sunsets around here are more cotton candy colored then the deep pinks, purples and blues, so I went a little lighter but the same idea
I used the following challenges for my inspiration
This or that challenge- I used washi tape
  and  I used the bonus sketch

I added a few hand cut flowers, but felt that the layout still felt really flat so I broke out the buttons and floss for some added embellishment.  Then topped it all off with the sparkly bling.  I used the cluster of flowers poking out from behind the photo to draw  the eye into the photo of the girls since the layout was a bit busy with patterns
Thanks for stopping by to take a peak.  I hope you join us this week at lasting memories
