Another Color Challenge from Karen

This will probably be my last layout for a while because school is about to start which means less time for stamping. Weekends will be full doing things that couldn't be done on weekdays, like laundry, errands, spending time w/ friends and family, even grading or doing things for my classroom. I have loved the challenges of my friends and will miss them. But, this does give me time to collect more photos so that the next break I do have some things to work with the paper art.

So, here are some of the pictures I took on our dinner cruise through Lake Washington and Lake Union in Seattle. We cruised by the UW football stadium, down to Bellevue, past Bill Gate's house, past the house boat used in Sleepless in Seattle all the while enjoying a wonderful summer evening with a full moon and gorgeous, colorful sunset. The food was fabulous with seafood appetizers and a pasta bar where they made pasta dishes to order. It was a nice evening for Michael and I. I have some cute pictures of us.

I used Karen's color challenge: Sorbet (new color), Petal, Honey, Ponderosa Pine, and Chocolate. The colors weren't hard but finding a layout that I could get all the pictures on and all the journaling on was the challenge. Some parts are OK, The layout is OK, not a total disaster, just not as good as some of the others this summer. Feels like I lost my mojo so it really is time to go back to school.
