Challenge #119 - Lots of Colour

It's very grey and dreary right now in Southern Ontario (and many other parts of the world!) so I thought a good challenge for this week would be to do a project with lots of colour. Any colour will do, just lots of it!

This is a page that I completed some time ago but was missing photos and embellishments. I dove into my stash finished it off. I really needed to work with bright colours and photos full of fun and sunshine. 

My made over Art Pouch is going to make me happy every time I go to use it.
Luscious colour and arty affirmations.
There is a tutorial over on my Blog on how to get this look.
I was certainly in new territory with this!

 I decided to try something unexpected and I colored... my black and white photos.
I played with Photoshop to get this look, and I think it helps to tell the story :  this layout is about my son who only said "gue gue" when he was a baby, so we used to say that he was our little alien... He also loved to hid in any box, even the tiniest ones, so sometimes, he looked like an alien in his flying saucer !
The titles reads "This little boy comes from another planet".


I love working with colour. It really makes me happy! I especially love putting colour against a white background. It really makes everything pop.

What will you do to add  little colour to your life this week?
