Frosted Designs Guest Designer!

I have the privilege of being the Guest Designer this week at Frosted Designs for their Fabulous Friday Challenge!  This week's challenge is to use Black & White plus one other color for your color scheme.  That may sound like a daunting task...but it is do-able and creates a unique layout once you are finished.  I suggest choosing your color and then looking for varying shades of that color in your stash.  Then dig in and start finding embellishments in black & white, plus your third color.  You'll be surprised how easy it is.  If you feel like working with three colors doesn't work with your photos, try changing your photos to black & white or sepia.  I chose pink as my color choice for this lo.  It worked well with the color of the beach towel in my photo.   Here is my sample lo for the challenge:

Now are you ready for the fun part??  Join in this week's challenge and come back here and leave a comment with a link to your project and I will draw a random winner on Thursday, June 30!!  Can't beat that...get a lo done and possibly win a scrappy prize in the process!  Good luck and can't wait to see what you create!  Here is what I'll be giving away:

Paper:  Glitz Designs
Pen:  Sakura
Acrylic Stamp:  Autumn Leaves
Ink:  Stampabilities
Thickers:  American Crafts
