Family Heirloom (PaperHaus Sketch & Prima PPP)

Spring is just around the corner and when i think Spring, i think GREEN! All shades of it!!! :)

Prima's March PPP is all about greens also.  Check it out:

While inspiring myself on this beautiful palette, i also decided to play along with this month's sketch challenge at PaperHaus Magazine.  The winner will be guest designing for PaperHaus next month.  If you've never checked out PaperHaus Magazine, you are missing out on an extensive gallery of amazing talents!  Click HERE to take a free look at their current issue.

Now let's see my 'green' project:
My niece Ella is so adorable in this picture, proudly wearing this family heirloom of a costume, passed down from a few generations on her Mom's side of the family.

The border was made using a Prima mask and embossing paste.  I then inked it with different shades of green ink mixed with a little black.

Although i love the color green (my blog decor is proof enough), i have to say i tend to stay away from too much of it while scrapbooking.  This layout was definitely a challenge for me.

How about you?  Do you often go green? :)
