Monochromatic isn't really my thing, and blue isn't really my colour, so when I saw this month's challenge photo from Scrapbook Boutique , I thought if I was lucky, I might manage a card.
But a month-long challenge pinned to your board has a way of permeating your subconscious, I guess, especially when it is as gorgeous as this one!
Last week I pulled out the photos I had printed from a camping trip with friends last October long weekend. I ended up dividing them into four sets of photos, with pairs of pages having a matching background so they work well together in the album. For one of the pairs, a chose a really pretty shade of . . . you guessed it, blue! I don't tend to post pages with photos of other people without their permission, but I don't think I'm really invading anyone's privacy with this one, do you?
The other requirement of the challenge was to use hand-made flowers. As you can see, I ended up being inspired by the patty case rather than the rose in the tea cup, and made pin-wheel flowers!
Just like blue isn't really my colour, argyle isn't really my pattern, and this paper was sitting in paper purgatory - but I rescued it for this project, and I'm really loving how the argyle works to make a pretty flower pattern! Not to mention a very cheap embellishment!
Thanks for taking the time to look
