Color Inspiration

Our LOAD challenge today came from Stacy Julian.  She is such an inspiration to me-I took a class from her at CKU in 2005 and have loved to learn from her ever since. 

The challenge-To pick a photo with strong emotion and choose a color to pair it with that reflects that emotion.

I picked a picture of my son with his dad.  Brad (my husband) died when my son was just 6 months old.  So the emotions run strong and deep.  I wanted to bring out the joy of the moment, so I chose yellow.  But the sorrow still comes through with the blue I used as an accent...This bittersweet page is the result:

Please let me know what you think.  By the way, my son said "Aww, that's sweet"  when I showed it to him.
