I started out with a blue layout with red accents then realised I don't have any embellishments that would go with it, so started again with the chocolate and blue. I seem to be developing my own signature style now - keep it simple!
I keep trying to do the elaborate layouts, but they always end up looking really dreadful, so I'll stick with what I know and what's comfortable for now
