A little blue ...

I loved the moodboard on Scrap the Girls this month - just a delightful combination of blue and teal.

The perfect colours for a beach photo I thought!!

An ugly duckling ...

Show us your stuff has an unusual challenge this month .... using ugly paper !!!

I guess beauty can be in the eye of the beholder so what I consider ugly you may absolutely adore and vice versa so I tend to rate papers on how long they have laid around in my stash and in this category they either fall into the "love them so much I can't bear to cut into them" category" or "hmmm, what on earth do I do with this?" category.  This background paper was most definitely in the later pile.

Happy days ...

Scrapbookit has a "Free to be you" challenge this month and has asked us to scrap something that makes us happy.

My daughter achieving her green P plates certainly made me happy when this happened a few years ago now and I thought this was an appropriate subject  for a "free to be you" style challenge because it documented yet another stage in life's journey for her.

I have also entered this layout to the August 'butterfly" challenge at Archi-Scraps
