Color…it's one of those things that can turn our moods around. In fact, research shows that 87% of all people who paint their dining rooms either red or burgundy actually are hungry more often! Hmm…thank God mine is a neutral color!  I'll admit, I love to eat. It's the Italian in me.  So, with color the topic today, mixing the right two colors together can have a great impact on any paper crafting project.  Stampin' Up!'s designer papers are gorgeous.  No, seriously, GORGEOUS!  The concept of color has already been careful planned for you.  I mimicked the colors in this designer paper to create this layout.  Yep, a Lisa original! 

I'm including the template for the images so you can recreate the layout yourself. Just an extra tidbit that I like to give my bloggers!  Oh, and one more thing. Don't miss the amazing collection of the "Best of " stamp set series. These sets are being offered for a limited time and a new set will be added to the collection every month during 2013.
