What are yours?
I'm scrapping some of my honeymoon photos - we had three weeks in French Polynesia - that's a lot of beach! I have plenty if stories to tell but I'm finding that I am using the same colour combo over and over - blue, green, yellow and Kraft/brown.
Now don't get me wrong, I like that scheme and have varied it up with different tones etc. but I would love to know what your go-to colour scheme is for this type of photo?

Would coral work in for you? I like it for a pop here & there.

Like PatiN, I would add a pop of coral or orange or hot pink.
They are opposite the color wheel from the blues and greens so it adds a bit of contrast, interest and energy.
You could also add some darker shades of your current colors to mix it up - a bit of chocolate brown, navy or shamrock green - depending on the layout.
I wouldn't worry about having a similar color scheme all the way through the pages. It makes for a cohesive feel and it complements your photos.

I only am really doing California beaches that much, but in summer I like orange and turquoise or red and turqoise a lot for these.

Look HERE for an unusual color combo.
Also, I have same paper on a page in my blog HERE.
