Interesting Fall Palettes

Today on the Little Yellow Bicycle blog, our challenge was to repurpose older collections and mix them up to make a Fall project.  I still love the Paradise collection and decided to mix it up with Hello Fall! to create this page about my daughter.

Can pink be a fall color?  Why not, it's the color that a lot of kids wear and is only slightly lighter than red.  That is what I thought when I pulled out these photos of my daughter from a trip to the park a couple weeks ago.  I love all the green and brown hues in the Paradise collection, so why not add pink to the Fall palette?  In fact, pink is the new red - lol.
I mixed in some of the corrugated chipboard from our Hello Fall! collection to ground the brighter colors and add more of the Fall elements to the page.
This squirrel has got to be one of the cutest things ever!  I just added a bit of bling for the eye and added it to the page with some foam tape.

PD-104 Splendid Stripe/Olive Leaves
PD-109 Pleasant Plaid/Earthy Dots
