Another Tuesday Color Challenge

Welcome to another Tuesday Color Challenge at the Outlawz.  I had so much fun with these colors. I decided to do another layout with one of my favorite pictures of Gunner.  This was Gunner last year with a little cast on his arm getting into the pool.  Gotta love how he is losing his pants!!!  This is a 6X6 page that I am working on in a mini album. I am putting it together with my bind it all so you can add parts to your layout that are not quite attached but pop out of nowhere!
The paper is from Echo Park Splash collection.  The stamps from CTMH.
I cut out the shaped piece with a  Tim Holtz Sizzix die cut.

Now, for the colors!  This week was my choice. 
And your inspiration photo.  Don't you just want to jump into this picture? I do!! Make's me want to make a trip to the Coast.  However this water looks much warmer than our Oregon Coast.
My husband and I recently made a trip to the Oregon Coast.  We had fabulous weather.   I am going to add an inspiration photo from our trip.
There were so many starfish on the beach here. I don't think I have ever seen so many at one time.

When I loaded my pics onto the computer I realized I had a spot on the center of the lens. Uggh! That is so annoying!!  We also hiked a very short hike at Cape Perpetua.  Just gorgeous.  I thought I would share a pic of my hubby sitting on a stump.  It is just a little stump!!
Thanks for bearing with me while I shared some photo's!!!  Don't forget to head over to the Outlawz and check out this weeks Color Challenge.  We have fabulous sponsors!!!

Adorable layout! Gunner is just so darn cute! Reminds me of that suntan lotion for kids where the dog is pulling down the girl's bathing suit. =D Awesome inspiration pictures. I love the Oregon coast. One of my most memorable trips out west we visited Oregon, saw all the waterfalls outside of Portland and went to Seaside. Your pictures are fab. =D

Love the photos, Bren. I think this little album is going to be adorable. I really like how you have the added shaped elements. That pic of Gunner cracks me up.

Great layout Bren, and what a cute pic of Gunner...love how you highlighted his little bootie!! Can't believe the size of those starfish, and the stump under your husband is looking on the large size too. Great photo inspiration (you know we all live close to the sea here), all you gotta remember is that the warmer the water the more sharks like it!! Dee

So adorable!! How's a lil' guy supposed to hold on to a ladder, have an arm in a cast AND keep his pants up?? lol! Love how you put the bling around his hiney!!
Great pics of your weekend trip! Wish I could've been there. Coffee on the beach and coloring. Would life be any sweeter?

LOVE that photo!! I've got a beach photo from when the boys were small that's similar but it involves sand...yep, it's a doozie!
Your layout is so great! I especially like the bling circle which makes one focus in on the wee plumber's smile! I'm still laughting!

Take care,
