Cool "Mint"...and WINNER, WINNER Turkey Dinner!

HAPPY TURKEY DAY everyone!!  Hopefully the turkey will be stuffed more than you are, by the end of the day!!  :)  Just popping in to share a new layout today!!  

I'm sure most of us have a love it or hate it attitude towards the flavor Mint, but have you ever thought about using the color Mint in your crafty endeavors?  It is really becoming popular and I have seen it in several new lines like Everyday Eclectic from Echo Park, Ready.Set.Go from Amy Tan, and 5th and Frolic from Dear Lizzy, just to name a few.  Get It Scrapped! is sharing an article today, focusing on scrapbooking with the color Mint.

I wanted to create a romantic, but modern look to this layout, about the photo of me with my hubby.  I did not want use the traditional "love" colors, Pink and Red, but I thought a soft Mint would be the perfect background for this photo.  I used several different shades of the Mint, to make it the dominating color on my page, and then added in just 3 other colors:  Pink, Brown, and White.  The Mint provides a soft background which allows the photos to stand out on my page and the additional colors provide a touch of contrast, to complement the soft Mint. 

Make sure you come check out what the other Creative Team members did with the color Mint at Get It Scrapped!
