“Orange” you glad that it is fall? I love fall and orange is one color that just shouts “fall.” From pumpkins to falling leaves orange is all around us. Traditional orange and black for Halloween looks great together, but the trend the past few years includes bright greens and purples and sometimes even turquoise is thrown in for some really amazing fall color palettes. Then there are the gorgeous colors associated with Thanksgiving that include the golds, reds, and browns along with all the orange hues. This week we are focusing on the color orange. I have to say that as a teenager I remember thinking that of all the colors orange was my LEAST favorite. I couldn’t imagine ever wearing orange or using it to decorate my home. My, how things change! I absolutely love the color orange now and am so excited that I get to be in charge of the orange color challenge. If you’ve been following along with our Designer Digitals Color Challenges this month, you know there is a prize awaiting a lucky someone who posts a layout in the Colors of Fall 2012 Gallery highlighting the color of the week and using all products from Designer Digitals. The prize, a $10.00 gift certificate to the Designer Digitals store, will be chosen randomly from the entries posted. This is a link to the gallery for posting your layout and viewing other layouts featuring the color, orange.
I want to thank Lisa Pate and Melissa Sill for helping me out with this Colors of Fall challenge. They created beautiful pages to inspire you to join in.
