Sunshine Studio Scraps features a monthly “Colour Splash.” What this means for you is that multiple designers have all used the same color palette to create their kits, so that you can mix and match them! This is actually my first time participating in one, but here it is, followed by some Gorgeous CT pages! My kit is called Remembered, currently on sale for 30% off!
