A little late

So I am a little late to call this a Valentine's post, but I am going to do it anyway!  Better late than never I think.  This layout was in response to a color challenge as part of the LOAD (Layout a Day Event).  The colors we were supposed to use were red, black and white.  I added pink - since red and white make pink... and some grey... you know it counts!

I liked how the black background I was using as a backdrop (to photograph my layout) looked, so I ended up going back and trimming the layout down on the left and bottom and adding a strip of black.  Having a specific color scheme in mind helped me pull the colors from my scrap bin and helped keep the layout looking coordinated.  The layout came together really quickly and reminded me that scrapbooking doesn't need to be complicated or take a long time.  It is just important to get the memories down and the stories recorded. (It is also nice to have a really BIG stash of stuff to pull from... and I do have a big stash of goodies!!!)

Hope you can squeeze in a few minutes to do something you love today!
