Seattle Waterfront... LMCB 160 (Use just one color)

And you guessed it!  I chose BLUE.  With of course a major amount of white space. 
Now if you are wondering what all that babble was about, well you gotta see the next challenge that started over at Lasting Memories a couple of days ago.  I'm a tad late sharing my layout with you all.  
The theme of the challenge is to use just one color, or shades of the same color.  We all decided that Black or White can be used as well.  They aren't really colors anyways... right??
Here's my layout...
Oh how we can take for granted the beauty of the place we grew up!!  My stomping grounds.  Having kids sure does make you see old things like new again.  :)  These photos are of the Seattle Waterfront over this past Labor Day Weekend.  Our last little quick jaunt over for some beach time before school started the next week.  As far as the challenge... I used lots of blues.  Found a white seagull embellishment and a cute whale paper clip that is silver.  So still falling within the lines of the challenge.
If you have never done a monochromatic layout... I think now is the time to try.  Definitely limits you, but I think it can keep things on the simple side which shows the photos better in this case.  Come on over to Lasting Memories by this Saturday and show us what you can do.  You have a chance to be one of our Featured Artists just for playing along.
I am also entering this over at the Paper Bakery using their sketch # 14.  I just stumbled upon their blog and this sketch immediately inspired me.

This is also my layout number 7 of 50 completed for our Scrap Your Stash challenge among us fellow DT members.  Feel free to join us!!  :)
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek today!!

Love your LO this week and you're right, our kids make us see what's old to us in a whole new perspective! I love seeing things through their eyes. Love the little dolphin paper clip! Great take on the sketch too!
