Life in the Slow Lane: A Teal Day!

A Teal Day!


I know I've missed out a few prompts...though hope to go back to them.....but  decided to go for Prompt 9 today- using one colour plus Kraft.

I had chosen my pic (YAY! back to my comfort zone!) and reckoned that I wanted to use teal/turquoise shades...this is what I came up with

I used a sketch from SCRAP FRIENDZY, which was by Valerie Salmon, and apart from  the Bo Bunny 'dot' everything else was from my scrap box.....another YAY!

After getting the LO finished, I decided to take Boo for a walk as it looked as if we would get rain later. I checked the mail box as I passed, and was delighted to find this:

It had come all the way from Arizona, from my lovely bloggy friend DEB, who has been sending these out as a way to show support  to TEAM TEAL, who in turn are supporting Deb's mum, Marti, who has ovarian cancer. I am honoured to  be part of this team now, and send my love, hugs and prayers to Marti and the entire family today! 

Now I'm off to make some teal Happy Mail! 

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. Alison! Thank you so much for this post. :o)!!! I just logged into Blogger and your post was at the very top - you had me a "A Teal Day." Thanks for your support for my mom and for helping to spread the word. It means so much to me, and I know my mom will really appreciate it too.

    Your layout is really pretty, and the photo of the teal band is awesome!!!

    Thanks again, dear one! xo

  2. What a happy coincidence. Lovely LO and such pretty girls. Kraft, polka dots, hearts and buttons, what more could a girl want!

  3. I love the colours that you've chosen - a lovely, happy page. You're doing better than me at keeping up - this one is next on my list!

  4. Loving that teal coloured dotty paper! Fab layout.

  5. Lovely layout! These classes are so difficult to keep up with!! At least you are getting through most of the prompts and am sure you will catch up too :)

  6. Don't worry - I only just posted my take on this prompt today! I loved the idea, and your page is gorgeous love the blue/teal with kraft - beautiful.

  7. Love the layout, though teal is my favorite color!! :) Thanks so much for your support of my grandma and my family through Team Teal!

  8. That paper is gorgeous...a perfect teal post!

  9. your teal layout looks fab...liking the dots.

  10. Love your layout Alison!! Teal and Kraft look so well together - don't think I have tried that one :)

  11. I have to agree about teal and kraft looking so good together. Love your layout and welcome to Team Teal!

  12. Hi Sweet Alison!!beautiful work over here!!
    I'm fine,thanks for visiting my are you??
    Wishing you a very nice weekend.

  13. I saw this on the forum - it's lovely :) And I've just realised I'm not wearing my Team Teal bracelet, must nip upstairs to fetch it!

  14. I've been struggling with the kraft challenge and this is helpful. Thanks. And welcome to team teal!

  15. I like the aqua color you chose to go with the kraft. I need to still do this #4 prompt, so hopefully I will get mine done this weekend. TFS!

  16. Now that is a perfect coincidence - or maybe (like I think we talked about before) it's another case of blogging psychic activity!

  17. Gorgeous layout, I love the colours xx

  18. Whenever Deb sends me a link to a blog, I'm always impressed with the talent out there in blogland! And you are no exception--beautiful layout and your color choice is perfect!

    And welcome to Team Teal! I so appreciate all the support from all of you. I can't help but believe if we all work together and join in this fight against ovarian cancer, that one day we'll see as much research and publicity as breast cancer gets. I think it's amazing the advances and cures that are available for breast cancer patients--God bless all those survivors! Now let's get on board and find a cure for ovarian!!! Thanks for your support!
