A few challenges ...

The challenge on Orange Paperie and Co this month was to do a black and white layout with a splash of colour. 

 My colour of choice is blue and I've done a very rare page on myself :)

 
 
 
The Studio Challenges have a monochromatic layout challenge for October which means
 using different shades and hues of a single colour!  This is my least favourite style of scrapping but since I like to challenge myself I've done one in various shades of brown.
 
 
 
 
and finally ...
 
Scrap the Boys have asked for a traditional boy colour combination of blue and green. 
 
 
The colours on this page haven't photographed well I'm afraid.  The background is the palest blue (not white) while the journaling strips are more of a green shade than the lime they appear.

love blue and brown together. A lovely layout and I think it is nice to do a layout about ourself sometimes. Your other two layouts are gorgeous as well. Thank you for joining in at Orange Paperie

Love your take on all challenges, Jane!
Your layout for Paperie is gorgeous and it is good to do the odd layout about ourselves (the memory keepers), every once in a while. Thanks for joining in at OP&C

Hi Jane, thanks for playing along in our Oct challenge. I like the clean lines of your design. It's a lovely page about you which is very important to do for your kids.
