    Each of us have certain colors, subjects, seasons, and techniques that we gravitate toward. I find comfort working in my favorite things when scrapbooking. And as hard I try, it is like giving birth when I have to make a layout using orange colors or doing sport or Love themes. I get lost in creative oblivion when using mono-tones or meduim color ranges of greens, lavenders, and aqua's. And I also enjoy doing heritage pages. The ultimate buzz I get is working with snow layouts...love...love...love em!

    What brings creative joy to your heart? What comes easiest for you to do and what is the most difficult?

    I tend towards earth tones and jewel tones, which are my personal faves. However I also try to match to the pictures, which sometimes gives me opportunities to go outside of my box with different color combos.

    I love love love paper, and I really enjoy trying new techniques and making my own embellishments.

    I like blues, purples and yellows.

    I'm drooling over the Scarlett's Letter Basic Grey right now! There's some other papers by them I like very few whole lines because of pinks

    Colors i use usually go with the pics i'm scrapping. Love to use purples though and patterns. but whatever looks good with the pics works for me. My fav theme to scrap is my kids it is SOOO easy to scrap them. and Disney Vacations. My hardest is getting my Heritage album started of my Grandparents, not sure if its the Black and White Photos or the age of them, or the fact that i Miss them Soo much its hard to look at the pics.

    It has been fun to see how you all tackle your LOs. Thanks for taking the time to share. I guess I have to start trying to use orange and branch out of my favorite color schemes.

    I SB with the subjects favorite color. I have GKs (boys) whose favorites are red, blue, and green, so their SBs used a lot of their favorite. My DD is definitely purple with pink accents. I'm trying to complete 40 years of her life now in purples, pinks, lavenders and rose. My trips I try to use colors that reflect the colors in the landscapes I visit. I guess that is the reason I collect so many colors of cardstock.

    Well, like a lot of what the ladies have already said.....I enjoy scrapping colors that are themed with the pictures and if that gets to complicated and overwheming then I go straight to the mono chromatic paper. In my book already I have a variety of colors (pages)

    What a great question to reflect on.

    I'm drawn to feminine but antiqued colors but really choose my colors by my photos.
    I'm artistically challenged so that's what I do.

    I also go with the subjects favorite colors. Those are the colors that they tend to wear the most. Since most of my subjects are my DD's that those colors tend to be purple, blue and green. Right now though I'm loving all the pretty flower and retro paper.
