Do any of you notice that you have a preference for certain color schemes in your pages? I've noticed that I have a lot of greens and blues and pinks. Last month I bought a bunch of black and orange paper because I didn't have any of either color.

And last night I realized I have 3 sheets of purple and I'm not really thrilled with any of the three of them, so I'm going to have to go get some!

I try to use a variety, but apparently I gravitate to greens and blues and pinks. lol

I really try to use a variety, but I do notice that I use yellow a lot as an accent color. It just seems to go well with everything. But I do also use a lot of blues & greens! Purple is one I try to use more but have a hard time fitting it in for some reason.

Yeah, yellow really is a good accent color. And I've noticed that it's hard to find yellow papers, have you noticed that? There wasn't all that much purple at Hobby Lobby today either.

Yellow is hard to find, they are always out, i tend to grab a bunch when i see it, i use alot of brown for matting pictures and lots of blues, i guess that comes with having boys. Really i use whatever matches the pattern paper that i choose.

I mix & match to suit my pics and it also depends on the album/pics I'm working with. The Greece pics have alot of blue. With Mark's album it's been alot of shades of blues, some yellows & greens. With niece, of course the pink & purple, but also greens & yellows. The others are so varied and don't have alof on any particular color.

I use a lot of browns, blues, and greens though I love brighter colors too. The brown/blue/green seems to be the cardstock I'm running out of the most though!

Right now I seem to use a lot of pinks and purples, but that is because I am primarily working on Kendra's album. I am sure I will start using a lot more greens, blues, and browns when I get going on Josh's album. Once the kids start going to school I will probably start using a lot more orange as that is one of the school colors.
