Primary colour LO for CKCB colour challenge no. 5

Good morning all

Here is todays weather report! Wet and windy... hrmmph! So here I am posting another LO that I have made this morning before my dear husband was even out of

As part of the CKCB NSD challenges.. one was to use just three primary colours.. and NO WHITE! 

Now some of you may realise that white is one of my current favourite background CS choices so I was up against it from the off... but here I have managed to use just three colours! Yellow, Red and Navy blue.

As it so happened I knew exactly which photos to use as I have recently re-found my sons firefighter 'passing out' photos.. and these are just perfect for this challenge. 

Next I chose a sheet of yellow woodgrain paper to use and I found some red letters that have been languishing in my stash for waaaaaaaaay too long. 

I used an old sketch (121) from the Creative Scrappers blog as the basis and added some extra yellow chipboard elements. Since I photographed the LO I have straightened the banners peeping out behind the top photo (luckily I'd used wet glue!) 

As I rarely use primary colours, I had to dig deep into my stash for these bit and pieces but I am pleased to have been able to use up some old stash. So thanks for the challenge CKCB designers... here it is if you too want to play along!

Be back later with another couple of LO's from the challenges set last weekend... bye for now!


  1. Thanks for entering my challenge. This layout looks fantastic! I'm glad I inspired you to use up some older scrapping items.Congratulations to him, he looks very handsome in his uniform.

  2. You've done a great job. I'm not sure I could have managed it! I remember buying primary coloured Doodlebug papers/card when I started scrapping and have never used it.

  3. Fab page, it really pops.

  6. You did a fantastic layout, I don't do primary neither so it's interesting to see other takes on it
