Yesterday, I finally succumbed and signed up to Pinterest. I'd managed to avoid it for fear of being sucked in to another online addiction but having a few minutes to myself, I decided to see what it's all about. So far, I can see how it can be a good way to keep ideas in one place, as well as somewhere to visually bookmark things I see on the internet.
I came across an image that I immediately knew would be a great inspiration for a colour palette for a layout:
I'm home alone today (and supposed to be tidying and cleaning!) but I fancied a play with my stash and so, using the colours from the photo, I came up with this:
Supplies from 'Metropolitan' and 'Mind the Gap' Studio Calico kits. Stamp is Studio Calico, embossed with 'Zing!' powder. Sassafras letter stickers and Martha Stewart and Smash tags.

The photo is of Graeme and me on holiday in Benodet, Brittany. We're creatures of habit and have been going away to the same town in Brittany for the last 6 years but this time we tried somewhere new and really loved it. Can't wait to go back.
