Today was a very purple day...I got dressed this morning and sat down at the computer and spotted a cute photo of an old classmate.  She had on a pretty ruffled purple tee shirt.  I sent her a quick compliment and she sent back that it was a purple day.  I looked down and realized that I was wearing purple shorts and a grey and purple striped shirt.  

I went on to work on a layout I started gathering everything for last night...yes - you guessed it - monochromatic purple!  I did this layout for the Colorful Creations Twisted Blueprints challenge using paint and this sketch:

Here is my layout:

I am also entering my layout in Whimsical Wednesday on The Memory Nest.

Tonite I chose to create a card using sketch #296 from Mojo Monday and color palette #184 from this weeks Play Date Cafe.

I am also entering this card in challenge #83 at Word Art Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope that you have enjoyed my day of purple!

And here is a really funny ps-

I just took a color quiz...and I am

you are darkviolet

Your dominant hues are blue and magenta. You're the one who goes to all the parties but doesn't quite fit in at every one... you know what you want, but are afraid of what the world might think of it. You're a little different and that's okay with them, and if you're smart it's okay with you too.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.
