August Color Challenge: Mellow Yellow

Sarah (sterkeurs) here and can you believe that we are in AUGUST already?? Seriously, this summer has gone by way too fast for me. In our neck of the woods, we’ve only had two days of rain in the past two months, so needless to say, there is a LOT of yellow grass due to watering restrictions. Everywhere you look, there is yellow grass, so I was inspired to use that as the inspiration for this month’s Color Challenge: Mellow yellow! All kinds of yellow will fit for this Challenge and there are lots of products in the store that you can use. To get you started, here is the link to the freebies that Katie has generously offered for the Challenge.

Some of our Creative Team and Guest Creative Team members have created fantastic pages with this beautiful sunny color! Linda (Earloxford) used a fabulous radial look to showcase a spectacular sunset photo.
