What a great colour combo this week. I just couldn't resist using them on a scrapbook layout. I used a page map by Ingvild Bolme to complete the layout below. You can check out her blog here. The only real challenge I faced was how to incorporate the rose red into a layout for a boy. I cheated slightly and used a pink heart that I've had in my stash for quite some time and never got round to using.

The flowers have been dyed using 'Pacific Point' Ink Refill of differing shades, while the faux stitching has been created using Stampin' Up's 'Mat Pack' and a 'Basic Black' Journaler. I used a sanding block to give a white border to the photo's. A technique that I had never used before but was shown to me by a lovely lady whom I sat next to at the 'Nic Howard' Class I attended in Timaru at the end of March.
