Lego Fun

I loved the books "50 Shades of Grey"  and you are probably wondering what that has to do with making a layout.    But at  "RED CARPET STUDIOS" challenge #94 is called 50 shades of grey and you are to use different shades of grey, a touch a red and a special technique.

I pulled out a dark grey piece of card stock and then in a very old pad of paper DCWV Holiday Stack, which I think I've had since 2009 and found these 3 different shades of grey patterned papers.
My touches of red are the brad on the flower and the 2 red sequins on the circles and a little red pen edging on the white swirl.   My technique is what I do for a lot of my patterned papers that overlap.  I've started to always mat them and make them stand out and separate them some.

Check out the challenge  here   "RED CARPET STUDIOS"  and be sure and play along.


  1. Beautiful layout. Love the colors.
    The papers are really nice too. It makes me feel good when I use from my stash that I have had for a long time.

  2. LOVE all the grey papers!! makes for one fabulous layout!! Did you see the movie yet? ;) I read the books and saw the movie.

  3. How great to use holiday papers on a non-holiday page. The shades of grey all go well together. Love the pops of red!

  4. Those photos really pop with your choice of background DP and embellishments! I love it! Thanks for joining us at RCS and hope to see you again.
