I am not usually a purple person either, but my daughters prom dress was light purple so I just used it on a bunch of pages, it was hard for me, but i think they came out good.. good luck

I have two major purple scrapping projects on my desk right now--my mom's 80th birthday (all purple) and dd's graduation and party (ditto on the purple). I actually like purple, but I'm sick of it after those two events! I had a hard time finding any purple pp, but did score some 6x6 pads that will work I think. Purple power for this weekend's scrapping, ok?

Yeeeah, good luck with that. I am so purple retarded I'm not even going to try lol.
I admire your self challenge skills. I'm actually looking forward to seeing what you create, assuming you'll post a link to the finished project?? (hint. hint)

I've had a "just do it" attitude about purple this year. For instance: "It's my birthday and I'm wearing blue, my cousin is wearing red - that makes purple!" And I like purple so one more purple LO about my birthday on top of that. And "I'm actually wearing lavender in this outdoor photo, so yes I will use that lavender butterfly paper!" I'm not home to check, but I think that's just three of several layouts where I justified purple this year.

Oh I'm with you on not being a purple fan; I hardly ever use it. However I'm working on a retirement sb for a friend and her retirement party was "Mardi Gras" so I've been making myself use the purple,gold,and green for her party pages. And they really aren't as bad as I thought they'd be. There were some really pretty purple pp out there and they weren't that hard to work with. So put on the purple and go! Maria

i actually like purple, it's just that i find it a hard color to scrap with. for some reason my pics just dont seem to look as good with it, you know what i mean?

I like purple, but almost never use it on my pages. Funny though because I just did. I had some birthday photos of one of my granddaughters wearing a purple sweater. A B-side of a Bella Blvd paper from the Birthday Girl line was perfect.

My cropping group used to do page kit swaps, and during the popular monochromatic phase of scrapping I ended up with lots of purple page kits I wasn't using. I decided to use them up for one long Easter weekend when we had a lot of family visiting and I had tons of photos.
Now my middle dd is on a Div 1 college sports team whose color is purple- so I have more than enough uses for purple pages.

I am the opposite. I think I would scrap with purple more but I don't have much purple stuff. I find it hard to find supplies with purple.
|Posted: 10/11/2012 3:58:11 PM|There was a thread a while back about the challenges of scrapping with purple. Not only do many scrappers feel that it's the hardest color to work with but there aren't many manufacturers that are putting out purple supplies. I challenged myself to using purple and used this layout as inspiration. I've never had a layout come together so quickly. It's one of my favorites.

I love purple - it is by far my favorite color and I use it all the time! However, I have LOTS of blue I should probably challenge myself to use.

i have a ton of blue- i'll join you on the blue challenge!
