LM #546 - Color Inspiration #1

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! I do hope that you have been able to partake in some of the iNational Scrapbooking Day festivities around the web this weekend. There are so many fun challenges to play along with!

It's also the start of a new month and we have a new theme and four fun new challenges for you! Our theme and challenges for May are all courtesy of DT member Maureen and she is bringing us color inspiration challenges! Here is what Maureen had to say - "I have chosen moodboards  as we are half way through Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern we are in the midst of Autumn,  Here in Australia not all parts get the same type of Autumn.  Here in Brisbane its like a mild Spring Day compared to our southern neighbours who's gardens are being prepared for winter and the trees are loosing their leaves." Maureen has chosen a beautiful mood board/color inspiration piece to get us started.

Here's a look at this week's challenge:

LM #546 - Create a layout using the colors from the mood board below. Neutral colors (black, white, kraft) are always welcome!
