Color Spots Scrapbook Challenge: Mango

I LOVE fruit! My all time favorite fruit is a mango, and not just any mango, an Ataulfo mango! This is the time of year when they are in season, well, they are imported to Utah this time of year! I buy them every week when I go to the store. We can’t get enough of them. It’s really a sad day when Costco no longer carries them until the next spring. Since these yummy fruits are on my counter right now, they became my inspiration for this months color challenge. (photo credit)(photo credit)(photo credit)

These inspiration pieces brought up some fun conversations with the Creative Team. There are so many fun uses of mangos. Different mango flavored items. Frozen mangos. Pre cut mangos (what?). Even though these babies have the dreaded pit in the middle, it won’t stop me from devouring one. Even my kids will gladly eat all the extra fruit off of the pit…then we have a good laugh with their messy mango faces! The taste is worth the mess! A few CT members joined me in creating pages from these mango inspired photos.

I (KimR+) love mangos so much, I just had to create a page with the fruit included! Mango parfait, Mango stir-fry…and it’s actually on the menu again tonight, and my new favorite flavored drink I can buy at the store. Ataulfo mangos have different shades of yellow and orange as they ripen, so it was fun to use the various colors around my page. They are a spring fruit, so I added a few flowers to my page to help showcase the season we eat these little babies.Supplies used: Artsy Spots Brushes, Stamps No. 05Assorted Messy Stitches: White No. 03Assorted Patterned Tapes: Fall No. 01Bead Scatterings No. 01Bridle Creek Element PackBrilliant Love: Roughed Up Pocket CardsCorrugated Brushes and Stamps MegaPakCreswell Element PackFine Line Twists No. 01Floriculture Mini KitHey Missy Complete Scrapbooking CollectionJuiced Mini KitLens Flares: Colors No. 01Let’s Be Silly Brushes and StampsLittle Bits Alphabet, Little Enamel Charms: Hearts No 01, Little Nutcracker Element PackMango Skies Mini KitModern Vintage Simplicity Paper Pack No. 01Modern Vintage Simplicity Paper Strips No. 01Notebook Journalers No. 02Photo Clusters No. 31Photo Corner Collection No. 03Scripted Story 3×4 Prompts Brushes and Stamps No. 01Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 01Vintage Charm Chip StickersJust Linens Paper Pack No. 18Readymade Layers: Botanical Clusters No. 01Readymade Layers: Spring Borders No. 01

Jana (jana) created a beautiful spring page with these colors. Just look at that stunning blend of her photo. The watery splashes remind me of the water on the mangos of the first photo. A fun touch of inspiration brought to her page not only by the color, but of detail in the inspiration piece.Supplies used: Catana Element PackMetsa Element PackLightly Letter Box Paper Pack No. 04Colorful Paint Layers No. 02Defining Paint Blend Layers No. 02Watery Typecast Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 05Photo Clusters No. 54Hello Autumn Element Pack, email inspiration (hello spring 3.24.12), Patterning Palettes Element Pack No. 01Spring Walk Element PackBliss Element PackSpill Frame Layers No. 19

Sarah (sterkeurs) put together a fun page with circles. Do the circles remind you of the lime segments in the inspiration photos? Such a cleaver page! Look at the fun cluster she created around the sweet photo.
