I did something completely different for this challenge. Because it is about multi-colored text I decided to go with some wordart. It is a while since I did some, In the recent Labs is a mention of colorpalettes and there are 2 called Blooms which I used for this layout. I used different fonts, the elements are fonts too. I used a frame, that Sue Thomas so generously shared with us a couple of weeks ago. It had the exact size I needed and saved me some time!
Sue your layout is gorgeous as always with those photos!
