The Look blog had a challenge, to use a colour both as the subject of your page and the theme. I was thinking about it and was reminded of the quote from Breakfast at Tiffany's. The whole quote (only a bit is on the layout) goes like this:

Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
Paul Varjak: Sure.
Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!

Anyhow, this is my layout about the mean reds. I have been having red sort of days this week, so it seemed appropriate.

I guess creating is like my Tiffany's.
