Colour Q Challenge #150

This week we have a bright and bold colour challenge for you over at Colour Q

For me, the largest challenge was combining Bermuda Bay and Lucky Limeade.
But I really like how it all worked out.

I decided to scrap our day in Pompeii, Italy.

This photo of my son is my most favourite photo from our trip to Europe. 
I love the lines of the photo, and the colours, and especially the smile on his face.
I tried to 'age' the paper to match the aged look of the murals on the walls.
Because Pompeii was completely covered with the ash from the volcanic explosion of Mt Vesuvius, most of the city remained intact under the ash for almost 2000 years.

This mural of the woman in the clamshell actually had the Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight in it.  I thought it worked perfectly in this layout.
