Retro colours and my gorgeous sister.

Once every two months, the awesomely inspiring site "The Color Room" has a special sketch for Inzpira readers. After it's published in the magazine, it goes up on the TCR-site as well, and this month, the colour scheme is inspired by a beautiful photo by our own Maria Hansson (an amazing photographer and just as fabulous person).

You're free to use the sketches at the Color Room, or to not use them, as long as you stick to the colour scheme - but I seem to always find them really really inspiring, so of course I used both!
Now, I'm not exactly brilliant when it comes to following sketches very closely, so this one got flipped horizontally and I may have added and subtracted a few elements... but I still think it's pretty obvious that I used Lydell's fun sketch? Don't you think?

Picture taken in August 2010, last time (...!!) my sister and I had a girls' night out!

I've used
Papperned papers from Prima, October Afternoon and My Mind's Eye (not sure about the turquoise on turquoise paper... Anyone know for sure?)
Leaves from You Do
Lace, staplers, buttons, Glossy Accents & Facetten Lack.

If you want to join, hop on over to The Color Room!
If you're Scandinavian and want a quick how-to-join (or if you would like to see mine and Helena P's layouts along with the sketch and colour scheme), pop over to Inzpira's blog for a run-down!

Be inzpired! Have fun! Create!

Ohhh! Den är ljuvlig! Älskar de röda blommorna. Och din syster är så himla vacker!

Jepp, jag kan definitivt se skissen! Det vore väl inte alls kul med skissutmaningar om allas layouter såg ut precis, exakt som skissen gör. Din tolkning är fantastisk!
