Theme Challenge: Brown

I'm deviating from the "topic" challenge and going with a "theme" instead ... let's go with the color brown! It can be monochromatic or just mainly use brown with other color accents. But brown needs to be the main color.

Let's give this challenge three weeks to run, we can go longer if we need to. Due date is Feb 10.

(for those new to our challenges, anyone can enter, it's not the same rules as the VC - the prize is the honor of picking the new challenge, in this case it's a topic/theme challenge. the other challenge series is a technique challenge. but the main "rule" is that the layout has to be completed during the challenge period, not earlier).

Post your layouts when you're ready! Siggies off on this thread please.

The journaling says

Looking back at this photo makes me want to go back to this day and tell you two to keep praying and keep believing. Your dreams will come true. In 4 years you will have not just one but two beautiful babies.

K, here's my two brown LO's so far!

This is with my son and godson fishing together at my grandma's lake in 2003.

And this one is us trying to potty train Journi, aka Queen Bah (Queen Stinky) with utter failure!

And here's another one:

Tracey - You must like brown! Wink You may want to pick one though that you want to submit Smile

Hmmm, brown. I'm not a fan of fall colors although I do use them occasionally.

I don't think of brown as just fall. Smile Of course, I think the majority of my shirts are either red or brown. ha ha ha

Tracey - love them, but you have to pick just one for the challenge. Wink

Brown is not usually my color. But I found a kit I loved, so I thought I'd use it for this!

Journaling: This was our first attempt at family pictures. We never did get one that we could use:)

It's a 2 page LO but I'll just submit the first half cause I like that one better.

Man, I didn't realize how little brown I had in my stash until I tried to do this challenge. I hope this is brown enough:

I had another idea for this challenge, but I haven't gotten it finished yet, so I'm entering my 365 page from week 3

Not sure if I'll have time to get another one done in the next few days, but if I do, I'll post it and withdraw this one. Smile
