06/21/16 - June "Ugly Paper" Challenge

It's "Ugly Paper Time" again!
(A Scrapbook.com Monthly Challenge)
A reminder of how the challenge works:
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
Here are my June "ugly" papers and embellishments (sorry about the awful photo):
 (BTW - I actually like these ones!!!!)
What I created w/ them: 
"Puppy Love"
Journaling: "My 2 'sons' spending quality time together".

I call our dog Spotty 'my son' also.
Just like I have 2 daughters: Madison and our dog Ivanna.
And 2 grandchildren: Madison's cat, Panini, and her pig, Hamlet.
Although the papers aren't really "ugly" or "difficult", what made the challenge even easier is
the fact that I had just taken the perfect photos for my papers 2 days before getting them!
When I took the photos I was planning on saving them for next month's SB.com "Scrap Your Pet" challenge, since I had already entered a layout for this month, but the papers were made for these photos so I used them!
I have plenty of pet photos to pick from for next month, anyway!
What I love about this particular "ugly paper" layout is, except for the journaling block, I used nothing else but the papers that were sent to me!

Also entered in the following SB.com June Challenges:

1 item - The PL card (cut) for journaling
