Color Story Challenge #3/ Your Smile

This for the #3 Color Story Challenge
Roxy is such a happy person, always smiling, and bringing excitement to those around her. Just finished round one in braces. New site I found Wednesday and of course could not wait until the next challenge when I would actually have time to think it out.I have had this headache for 2 days now, so when I was up not sleeping, decided to go for it. Love the color combination, I am not a pastel person. This is such a fun challenge, to break you out of your mold.

Taught my class this am at the scrapbook store , the 1 hour $5 class. It was with a great group of ladies, the page was with the new Cosmo Cricket papers. Needless to say I have to scale back the embellishment for this class. Stayed a little late to help the ones that wanted more pick out goodies for their pages.

Met my mom for lunch and came home and went to bed.
Had to take the photo inside tonight, I just did not care about getting up to take a photo out side today. Black and white photo is a little off, but did not use the flash ( too much glare on the photo). I will retake it later, but deadline for submission is about 1 hour form now.

What do you think.............I think I may have gone just a little overboard with the color. Most of the other designers started with white or light backgrounds, but hey Red is a neutral color isn't it???
The swirl is the new K and Co paper, but I had to change the pink to red, love the red dimensional paint. It also comes in silver, white, yellow gold and pink. the swirl had red, yellow gold and white. I also used the new pastel writers that are like tinted white out. The page has white and yellow. Will have to get the name for you if you are interested, they are fun to work with.
In case you haven't noticed I love black and white ( or cream) with almost every color. Ithink most of my pages have black in them.
