Raindrops On Roses Mini Kit

This mini was made for the Oct 2010 Color Challenge at DSS hosted by Monika Designs. It includes 6 papers and 12 elements. As soon as I saw the color palette I thought of roses. My grandparents used to play that old song while we traveled and that was the inspiration for the name Raindrops On Roses. Hope you enjoy!!!

A perfect kit for those everyday "newsworthy" photos. Newspaper print
and a pretty blue accent color make this a very versatile kit.It has a
little bit of everything that scrappers need. The little newsboy and the
bird were sketched by my husband and were my inspiration for this kit.
Includes a tip for using decorated/colored clipping masks.
All items created at 300 ppi and saved in .png or .jpg formats.
Some items resized for preview. Shadows for preview only except
for slight shadows on clustered or layered elements/papers.
All items quality checked by me for stray and missing pixels.

20 papers including solids, newspaper and crossword patterns, a blue
floral pattern, lined notebook paper and various brushed and blended
42 elements including
6 Frames:
Newspaper Edges Frame
Floral Pattern Frame w/wrap
Double newspaper print frame
Crossword Pattern frame

I actually pulled one of my first kits, News Flash, to re-do the papers and ended up re-doing almost all the elements as well. So I decided it's fresh new look needed a new name. I got so into the whole re-do, refresh and revamp thing......I re-did my blinkie, blog, logo and product packaging. Hope you like the new look!!

October 2010 Color Challenge at Ivy Scraps

Hope you'll come and join us in this months color challenge at Ivy Scraps HERE

Here is the palette

And here is the free mini for participating in the challenge

After the warm lucious fall colors last month, I was looking for a lighter, simpler palette. I was inspired by my little grandson Lucas. Last year when he was two, he insisted his Halloween be "Not Scary". I'm hoping the lighter colors and happy ghosts achieved that.
The challenge is to use only the colors in the palette for your layout or mini OR use the pale orange and green with whatever colors you desire. I love choices LOL!!!
