Ode To Pink

I spent the day working on digital layouts. I am really getting into scrapbooking on the computer. I thought it would be quicker, but it really isn't. Not for me anyway! There are lots of free digital scrapbooking kits online. Just do a Google search and see what you can find. 2Peas has a different free kit every month, so that is a good place to start. I took a couple of classes, which really saved me a lot of time (and frustration) trying to figure out how to do it myself. It helps to have someone walk you thru the basics and answer any questions you might have. There are also lot of books available on the subject too.

So this is my Ode to the Color Pink. I like pink a lot - all shades of it. I don't know when I started liking pink, but at one point I noticed that I use pink a lot in my artwork. I have more shades of pink paint than any other color. I love pink flowers. I also look good when I am wearing a pink shirt or sweater. My dishes have a pink floral border on them. I wanted to buy a pair of pink crocs, but I chicken out and went with boring blue instead. And as I mentioned in the journaling to the right, I like that pink coordinates well with so many different colors, like green, blue, orange, brown, grey, black, etc. That is probably why I am able to use it so often in my art. I guess you could say that pink is my favorite color (although green runs a close second on my list of faves.) What's your favorite color?

That is a lovely layout. I love to see pink but it doesn't suit me at all I love red.

I like pink, too - all shades of it. I wrote about the color a few days ago myself... thinking pink must be in the air!
