Color Spots Scrapbook Challenge: Dark and Soft

My favorite season is here!! The buds are appearing on the trees and my perennials are appearing in the yard. However, we also have many days filled with dark clouds and rain…and several days of snow too. This months color challenge was inspired by spring weather here in Utah. Soft pinks, blues and greens along with a dark contrasting black. Here are a few inspiration photos.
