ColourQ Christmas Colors

The ColourQ challenge this week is very Christmas-y but outside of my box. This color choice reminds me so much of how my sister decorates for Christmas: curly with polka-dots, texture, pink, lime & pine green, and red. I channeled my inner sister and ran with it.

Here is my scrapbook page + detail from our Christmas last year. I'm a big fan of grids used on layouts. They make things cleaner, simpler, and prettier (in my opinion). But they are especially useful if you have a short story or are lacking for inspiration. A grid almost always helps!
