CCW Birthday Blog Hop ... INDIGO

Suddenly before my eyes
hues of indigo arise
with them how my spirit sighs
paint the sky with stars
                                                                                              (Enya)


Now this has nothing to do with my project, you understand, except the 'hues of indigo' bit but it was a nice excuse to play you a beautiful song. :o)

Anyway, my project for our blog hop today is a scrap map using a very dark blue patterned paper. I'm not going to write a long tutorial - hopefully the map and my layout will be enough to get you started. 
To take part in our birthday blog hop and be in with a chance of winning what's in the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow you need to visit one of our DT blogs each day and leave a comment.
So far you should have hopped from Red  Orange  Yellow  Green  and Blue. If you haven't already done that it's OK to start now. :o) Tomorrow's post will be Violet 

Oh and last but not least, I'm offering a bit of surprise blog candy to one of my lovely followers who leaves a comment on this post today.

I'm a great lover of buttons and rainbows so a rainbow of buttons on a page is always good to see.
