06/28/18 - June 2018 "Ugly Paper" Challenge

Just sharing my layout for the June 2018 "Ugly Paper" Challenge
Here are the rules of the challenge:
1. After signing up, the host gives your name and address to another participant
2. The other participant sends you 2 "ugly" papers and at least one ugly embellishment
3. You MUST use both papers; the embellishment(s) is optional
4. You are allowed to use other items as well, as long as the 2 "ugly" papers are included in the layout
5. You are allowed to alter the papers and, if used, the embellishment(s) but they must still be recognizable  
 The original Papers/Embellishment:
(Just FYI - my partner knows I don't care for "baby" papers or "flower" paper ... she tried to stump me, but I actually like these!)
 My creation: 
"Hey There, Adventure"
The journaling reads:
"When I told Madison her Daddy was in the sky getting ready to jump out of a plane, this is what she did.
February 18, 2007"
Photos from when my husband went Tandem Skydiving back in...2007; geez time flies!
My daughter was only 5 at the time - she's now 16.
I have not scarpped a single photo of this event so I'm glad to finally have done so... 11 years later!

If you can't tell I did use both of the ugly papers: the BG is the airplane paper and the roses around my daughter's photo I fussy cut out of  the rose PP.
I did not use the Ugly Embellishment.
I tried, I really did, but in the end it just did not work!

*BTW - I realized as I was posting the photo on Instagram that I used the BG paper upside down!
Oops, LOL .... Oh well!



  1. If you wouldn't have said it was upside down, I would not have noticed! LOL!! That paper is PERFECT for those photos!!! Sounds like fate was there for you not scrapping those photos till now!!!!!!

  2. It's only upside down if you wanted it to say "Zooooom". I think that "Wooooooz" more accurately shows how I would feel watching someone I love skydiving.

  3. That is a cute story! Love it :D
