Neon Green and Orange {Drill #11 S.W.A.T.}

Did you hear the news?  I'm on the design team for S.W.A.T. (Scrap Warriors Advanced Training)!!  YUP - and today is the official "reveal" - you were introduced to the DT June 29th through the blog hop and now you get to see more of our creations.  

For my first  official post we were told to work with neon colors.  When I think of Neon colors, I think of Day-Glo Green and Safety Orange and those are exactly the colors that dominate this layout.  I struggled a bit with using Neon as its not my style, yet isn't that what crafting and scrapbooking are all about?  Trying new colors, styles, textures?  I even went to a few of my online scrappy friends for some advice on how to bring this layout and card to life!

I often use sketches for my layouts and cards but this time around, I used my own noodle.  I'm liking the way the layout and card came out - its good to push oneself from time to time.

Hope you enjoyed my creations and don't forget to create something awesome and link it back to S.W.A.T.  by July 28th, 11:59 EST.  I know that there are prizes involved - an Elles Studio Prize Pack from our sponsor:  Boys Rule.  

Have a scrappy-happy day!
