Welcome to the HYWWP "Over the Rainbow" Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Over the Rainbow blog hop! One of the things scrappers love most is COLOR! During this journey you'll encounter all seven colors of the rainbow and some of our favorite things about those colors. In order to play along all you need to do is leave a comment on each blog saying what you love about the color featured on each blog. You can even just tell us your favorite thing (scrappy or not) that is that color! Once you reach the pot of gold, post ROY G. BIV!! and you're done and ready to start cropping with us!

Hi! thanks for visiting my blog! I am featuring the color Violet. It's ironic that I picked Violet since eggplant purple is one of the colors for my wedding in July! Everything in my world is a shade of dark violet right now...on the other hand its a color that I have never used in scrapping at all besides as a small accent color like on this layout.

So I have a challenge ahead of me learning how to scrap in purple...Speaking of challenges...leave a comment on my blog with how you have overcome a scrappy challenge and be registered for an adorable kit from S.E.I.

If you started with Jenny's blog then you have officially completed your rainbow and its time to head over to Lisa's blog to continue the fun!

Be sure to join us at Have Your Way With Paper for our "Lucky You" Crop next weekend - fun and prizes for all! Thanks for playing and we'll see you there!

For Valentine's Day my husband got me purple/violet tulips. I'd have to say those were my favorite! :)

To overcome a scrappy challenge, I use websites like Scrapbook.com to get some tips and inspiration. Sometimes it helps to see how other people have used a tool or technique before you do it yourself.

i'm not a big fan of most purples, but i can say violet is a very pretty shade of purple. a color i've not had much luck with on pages. to overcome 'challenges' in scrapping, i find i just jump right in and hope for the best!

The violets in my Gram's garden.

LOVE purple flowers! And I love mixing purple and orange for fun Halloween pages.

Sketches are usually my spring board for getting started on layouts. Without a sketch, I have the worst case of scrapper's block. :)

It is the best complement color to orange for Halloween pics for sure!

To overcome a scrappy challenge I go to sketches, in my books on blogs and websites. Or a favorite paper pack :O)

love purple playdoh and eggplant...yum!

My scrappy challenge has been and always will be actually scrapping! I'm getting over this challenge by going to more crops and not trying to scrap while at home. I can always think of other things that need to be done when I'm at home.

violet is Emily's most favorite color.... and my niece's best color too! We love all the purples around here.

Kari said...

I love violet...one of the names we thought of to name our daughter was violet. My mother in law is Viola (similiar to violet). The color is absolutely gorgeous on wildflowers such as lupine!

My aunt mindy is one of my favorite people in the whole wide world and she loves her purples and violet. To my Bar Mitzvah, she wore a purple tuxedo and she always makes me smile.

Purple? Comes to my mind the smell of lavanda!

His girl friends are all with purple... not pink anymore! ")
