Crafty Ann's #73 Turquoise/Aqua plus Purple/Lilac

It's time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's and we have a choice for you this time - either a monochrome card in shades of turquoise/aqua, or lilac/purple or you can do a duotone card using both of these colour palettes. These colours only please, this isn't a general monochrome challenge." . I've chosen to do a layout.

The papers and elements are a mix from Imperial Purple, Tempting Turquoise and the Pretty in Pink scrap kits which are all available from  Crafty Ann's Digi Shop. The photos were taken on holiday 16 years ago when the boys were just 5 and 3. Gary spent two whole weeks snorkelling - he hates water now! We always laugh when we see him in his first pair of glasses though, they were real Dennis Taylor ones (only those of a certain age will know what I mean lol ).

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see Ann and the teams creations, you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
OLLCB - all at sea
The Crazy Challenge - anything goes
