S.W.A.T. Drill #11: Neon

Have you noticed that neon is back? Yes, 80's neon! It everywhere in clothing stores, and it's even spreading to scrapbooking. Today at S.W.A.T. we are giving you some inspiration to help you use some of those bright colours in your next project! Check it out at this link. Make sure you link up your own neon project at the SWAT blog for a chance to win a Boys Rule kit!

This is my layout:

I decided that less was more in this case. Before I even started, I knew there would be a lot of white space in my layout; I didn't want the colours to be overwhelming. I picked a couple of Dylusions sprays, punched stars, washi tape and strips of brightly-coloured paper and VoilĂ ! I really like the neon with that picture of Kira and Ethan, my friend Erin's son (the pic is from 2010, the layout is new!)

Cardstock: American Crafts
Papers: Doodlebug Designs
Sprays: Dylusions (Fresh Lime and Squeezed Orange)
Letters: American Crafts
Paper frill: Doodlebug Designs

Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.♥

Love all the white space in this layout Claude! The bright colours sprinkled around really make the photo the focus - and it's such a cute photo too!
