Cool "Mint"...and WINNER, WINNER Turkey Dinner!

HAPPY TURKEY DAY everyone!!  Hopefully the turkey will be stuffed more than you are, by the end of the day!!  :)  Just popping in to share a new layout today!!  

I'm sure most of us have a love it or hate it attitude towards the flavor Mint, but have you ever thought about using the color Mint in your crafty endeavors?  It is really becoming popular and I have seen it in several new lines like Everyday Eclectic from Echo Park, Ready.Set.Go from Amy Tan, and 5th and Frolic from Dear Lizzy, just to name a few.  Get It Scrapped! is sharing an article today, focusing on scrapbooking with the color Mint.




I wanted to create a romantic, but modern look to this layout, about the photo of me with my hubby.  I did not want use the traditional "love" colors, Pink and Red, but I thought a soft Mint would be the perfect background for this photo.  I used several different shades of the Mint, to make it the dominating color on my page, and then added in just 3 other colors:  Pink, Brown, and White.  The Mint provides a soft background which allows the photos to stand out on my page and the additional colors provide a touch of contrast, to complement the soft Mint. 

Make sure you come check out what the other Creative Team members did with the color Mint at Get It Scrapped!

And before I head out to gobble up some Turkey (yes, the puns keep coming!!), I need to announce the Winner of my Fall Kit from the ScrapFIT Fall Color Inspiration Blog Hop.  And that lucky person is:
