Color Challenge: Limeade Green Monstah Layout

Hi Everyone, it's Kathy today with my take on Doodlebug's Design by Color Challenge.  The Design Team was asked to pick one color from the Doodlebug palette and create a layout/project/card  that was at least 75% that color.  It was a hard choice (I love ALL Doodlebug colors...) but I chose Limeade.  And as luck would have it, I had the perfect picture to complement my color choice!

For those of you who are not sports fans, or familiar with Boston landmarks, the Green Monster (properly pronounced "Monstah" in Boston) is the left field wall of Fenway Park.  My husband and my daughter recently attended a concert at Fenway and were kind enough to get their photo snapped in front of the wall! (ok, let's be honest, I sent them with explicit instructions to do so...)  I started by searching through my Doodlebug stash for all things Limeade!  I found many papers including some from the Petite Prints, Kraft in Color and even some from 2011's Monster Mania collections.  (I realize I've just outed myself as a Doodlebug hoarder....) 

I added a Limeade Chevron Treat bag to hold a hidden journaling tag which is embellished with some Limeade Doodle Twine.

I had a fun time going through all my Doodlebug goodies looking for more Limeade!  I found some stickers from the Kraft in Color Collection, some Limeade Fancy Frills, and a couple of Stickers from the Day to Day Collection.  Best of all, I found this ADORABLE Monster Doodle pop in my stash from the Monster Mania release!!!  He was the perfect addition!!
To complete my layout I added some Limeade Shin-dig Sugar Coated alphas, mixed with some Limeade Teensy Type letters for my title.  This was a really fun layout to create...I had a great time figuring out how to make it all work!  That's it for me today, make sure to keep coming back to see more inspiring project from the design team!  Thanks for stopping by!
