Mix It Up!

Once again here's an awesome challenge from Melanie at Mix It Up Don't forget to stop by and see what her dt did with it!

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining us for another Mixer! This week's mixer is a color inspiration, I love how colors can easily reflect a mood or theme one wishes to convey on a layout. This color palette seems very trendy to me. I think of the new Fall clothes that are just hitting the stores (I'm a sucker for Fall clothes) and this palette just makes me happy! I hope you will enjoy it too!
