Got Pumpkins?

I just have to say before I show you this layout, this is one of my very favorite layouts I've ever made.  Love the colors, love the pics, love the get the idea.  This is the layout for today's challenge at Apron Strings.  The challenge is to use the weekly sketch and replace at least 2 smaller photos for a larger one.  I used the same number of photos, but enlarged three of them from the provided sketch size.  After I had everything glued down, I realized the challenge may have meant to have one photo take the place of two photos.  Oops.  Hope this still counts!

I used pictures from a visit to Eckert's Orchard last fall along with Boo To You papers by My Mind's Eye.  The orange polka dot paper is by Reminisce.   And here's each individual page.

Finishing this layout got me thinking about favorite color combinations.  My go-to combo is definitely orange and blue, but if I'm using three colors it's orange, green and black.  Although black, red and bright blue is a close second.  Layouts or cards using those color combos just come together so quickly for me.  Do you have a favorite color combo you turn to time and again?

Till next time...
