Winners and Designer Showcase: Projects using Favorite Color Combos

Hi Pam here. The winners are listed at the bottom of the post from the class giveaway.
Onto this week's designer showcase! I asked the contributors to send me projects using their favorite color schemes.  I will start...
My favorite color combos change a lot. But right now I am totally into these colors. I included two color schemes b/c I couldn't choose which one I liked better. For the first page my favorite color scheme is kraft, navy blue, teal, yellow, tangerine, red, and white. The second page has the following colors I love: teal, red, tangerine, yellow and kraft!!

Up next is Cindy's project with her favorite color combo. Cindy's favorite color combination and ones she uses a lot is blur, green, and brown. This goes great with nature photos and lots of other pages! I like this combo too!

Here is Tanya's project and her favorite color scheme: orange, lime green, teal, navy blue, and white. This is what she said about her page,"I made this card for my nephew's birthday, and loved the color scheme.  I used Doodlebug's Boys Only collection for the inspiration and background paper.  I used Stampin' UP! stamps, ink and punch to finish the card."

Sharon's favorite color combo is hot pink and orange. Her page looks great in this scheme. Take a peek!

Cathy is sharing her favorite color combinations on this page. She loves teal and orange together. The journaling reads, "All my life, I’ve always dreamed of getting to Wyoming.  Actually the dream is to one day have a cabin on a ranch there. But at the very least, to vacation there. Finally made it there for a week of vacation in 2012. We had the best time. We spent time in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I fell in love. I can’t wait until we can go back there again. The dream of having a cabin on a ranch there may not be realistic, but my mind knows that my heart will always long for the open spaces and mountains of Wyoming. It’s a dream I’ll always hold on to."

Lesley is sharing her favorite color scheme. This is what she says about the favorite colors on her page and such, "My favorite colours are blue and pink, I love these colours in all aspects of my life and have done since I was very young, so it naturally came out in my scrapbooking layouts especially when my granddaughter Sofia was born and my love of pretty and fancy girlie layouts was born as well.  I also love yellow combined with blue, so in this layout I managed to include that with both blue and pink to showcase all my favorite colours together.
I've used mixed media on this layout, the lines of dots down the sides were created by using moulding paste and a Crafters Workshop template.  When dry I covered this and the centre of the page with Gesso, then rubbed it back with a 'baby wipe' to soften the impact of the white.  I then used white Pan Pastel around the dots to emphasise them.
Another one of my loves can be seen extensively in this layout, dies, I used 5 different ones on this page."
