When I first saw this color combo, my first thought was "What am I going to do with this", these colors are completely outside the box for me and I though I was going to have a very hard time putting a layout together, to my surprise, it was a lot easier than expected. Photos of Maria falling sleep in the middle of lunch. She must have been a little tired! :-)
Beautiful layout and I like the colors. I am with you I have certain colors that I like to work with and it is hard stepping out of the box!
Great job :)
