Morning Katie (well its 7.24am here), thanks for the freebie.. loved the ranch layout !
this page by Nath uses mostly neutrals with bits of orange

as you can see from the sample pages... starting with a neutral foundation gives a good starting point and adding in embellishments above and below the photo helps to embelish the photo without taking away from it.
Hi Katie, and all - thanks for the beautiful freebies
The examples are all so lovely but especially the sampler you did - the coloured photos bounce off the page.
And you don't want to forget the journaling. It's one of the most important reasons why we scrap... to tell the story.
My grandmother kept old photo albums... lots of them! But very few notes to know where they were, if they liked it, there favorite things there, who people were they were pictured with etc.
I want Kelly and her children to be able to look back on the photos after I'm gone and know the story that went along with them
Hi Katie! Thanks so much for the freebie! Will brown do as the additional color?
The vintage papers are great choices for blending in with your photos

I'm back....13 blowers and 2 humidifiers and LOTS of holes in the ceiling! 3 to 5 days with all this noise. Now I can work on pages! Yay!
sounds like an absolutely doozy Jenn! but I'm happy you made it back!
Hey Katie. This actually happened this afternoon while shopping for supplies. So I will just enjoy the chat and examples and try again when it's not so busy on the site. Does the freebie stay up after the chat?

Hi Jean, No, the freebie is taken down after the chat. The site is running smooth, maybe if you restart your browser the issue will go away... keeping my fingers crossed!
Katie's challenge - Digital Scrapbooking Ideas - DesignerDigitals
Fastest page I have ever done... Might be because I'm tired and know that my babies will be up in a couple of hours
Thank you so much for hosting this challenge, Katie! The freebies were super inspiring!
I was talking about how it's always good to start with a neutral paper as your foundation, sort of playing it safe, and then go from there!
Did you know all of the designers here at DesignerDigitals nearly always put a fairly neutral paper in their kits? You really can't go wrong with a kit from any designer here!
OK they're in my cart - the botanist papers 4 - I've been admiring them for ages - they will be perfect for my heritage pages!
thanks for reminding me about them, Katie
thinking I forgot to mention, but it looks like you've all caught on...
please post your pages from this event here

I'm off to bed! Have a nice evening, everyone!
yes I'm in Brisbane Australia... deciding whether I am awake enough to do this challenge... working on less than 4 hours sleep after Ali & Cathy's chat !
oh dear! And Lynn, who's in your area will be on in 3 hours!
Great layout Heidi!
What's the best way to share my project for the challenge? First time for me!
