Colour Me #53 - Monochromatic

Good morning! 

Today starts my first official post with the Colour Me Challenge blog. I have been playing along with this challenge for a long time so I am so excited to now be a part of the team. 

The challenge for this week is Monochromatic - Perfect Plum. 

I will say purple is not my favorite color. It's not even in my top five. So this was definitely a challenge for me. It took a while to figure out what I wanted to create but in the end I was very happy. 

I threw caution to the wind and used as much purple as possible. Once I was all done it wasn't so bad and I actually really liked it! I love the way the white pops against the dark color. 

The whales and the sentiment are from Lawn Fawn. I think this is just the cutest set ever. That sentiment just cracks me up. I said it my niece at least 10 times over Christmas vacation. We both laughed. Ok... maybe I just laughed but she enjoyed it too! 

I hope that you will head over to the blog and check out the new design team and what everyone has created to inspire you today. 

Our challenge ends on Mondays at 12:00 pm (EST). We have a few rules to keep things fun and fair!
