Purple Reigns

Today you'll find me over at Notes on Paper where the ever inspiring Julie is going through a Purple Phase


She has been taking an autumnal look at the colour purple, with tips and hints on using it for crafts, clothes and interiors. There is a lot to enjoy, including a selection of purple palettes to inspire, a special Purple Phase Pinterest board full of inspiration, and a few guest bloggers ready and willing to take playing with purple to a whole new level. I'm here with a post about purple boots. Thanks Julie for your lovely invitation to partner up with purple!

Update on the paper bags from last week. I've posted out 8 sets of bags (I hope they'll be with you today) and I could stretch to a couple more if anyone is still interested. As an extra challenge, I'm wondering if you can work out a way to include the envelope your bags came in?

I'm a big purple fan too and I'm loving Julie's series. I'd be interested in the bags if you still have them. I'm thinking it might be a good way to keep all the ballet photos which didn't make it to the layout but that I still want to journal about.

I enjoyed your post over on Julies blog as I am the whole series. I would also be interested in some bags - think they would be great to make a album of our trip to the Eden project during the summer hols.

Terrific post for Julie! Those boots are amazing and so is the LO! I have been a purple lover from the get go! All shades of purple just make me happy. I had a weak moment where I actually considered buying a pair of mauve Uggs but then decided that in my forties I was a bit too old for them. Better leave them for the 12 year olds! hee hee That felt purse is beautiful!!

Purple - what an interesting color. I almost never scrap with it, but love to wear it. It was my favorite color growing up, when I talked my mother into putting purple shag carpet in my bedroom!

And I love that shade of purple - mmmm, Cadbury's Dairy Milk....

Never thought of myself as someone who wears alot of purple, but it does creap into my wardrobe around this time of year. Maybe it is more of a plum?
