    What is that one color that you usually don't scrap with? Is that color not very big in your closet too? For me it's purple. I don't scrap much with purple, but then my closet is something completely different. I was wondering if I am the only crazy person with such a strong feeling for purple for scrapping. :giggle Maybe your scrappy resistant color is YELLOW, which is my scrappy go to color. :dizzy

    Yeah, purple. I like purple outside the pages, but on a page? Naw.

    There's also some shades of green often paired together in kits I simply loathe.

    I don't know that I avoid any colors, really, if they fit the photos and theme. Maybe grey? I don't use a lot of grey.

    I love green too, I see it a lot in my pages without even really meaning to grab it.

    Red and turquoise is not something I usually do together, I better try it.

    Add me to the purple list as well and a lot of the shades--lavender, violet. In my closet I have a sweater that is purple and grey striped.

    I too love using red and I find I use quite a bit of neutrals.

    I have used both purple and pink in my pages before - but they would not be my "go to" colours, and that's more so with purple than pink! But I'm really not a pink kind of girl....

    I even scrapped a page about me "Not doing pink"

    LOL

    LOL Vicky....

    I have to say: it depends.... I tend not to like green papers because I like clusteriung with green leaves and to me it clashes...

    Now that you say it...I don't think am too big on purple wen scrapping... lovce clothes ...but don't wear ot too often either.

    II seem to be going through a phase of black & white... that maybe because my life is too complicated right now, when am stressed out, I think I go for neutrals..

    that page is so pretty!

    Someone pointed out that I had a lot of purple items in my closet and I never realized it. I think it's a color that with my skin tone goes well.

    you look well in any color...though am not sure about yellow on you...
    which I forgot to mention: it is quiet difficult for me to scrap yellow as main color (which you do amazingly well) I started to use it as spot of color but main? mmm page is bound to be horrid LOL

    Normally it's purple for me, but those talented designers manage to find lovely colors to team up with purple and then I find I can tolerate it better.

    i am totally in the purple boat too - i do have a few purple shirts and i really stoppped and thought before buying one in particular b'cos i loved the style but it was only available in royal purple... like the worst colour in the world in my book.

    Lavendar/Lilac i can do in tiny tiny amounts and I often buy DD shirts in shades of purple (and my bedroom wall is a shade of purple - like more dark-ish towards eggplant and i love how it makes the room feel) but scrap-wise, it makes me cringe...i don't know if it's becos usually it's with orange and green in halloween kits

    For me, it is purple followed closely by pink. I'm scrapping boys, so if I have a kit that includes pink, I'll often colour-adjust it to red to make it a little more masculine.

    For me it is also purple. I can scrap grey but would never wear it.

    I use them all... but I think I use brown the very least, it usually only shows up in a wood background or wood elements.
