Ugly paper- Beautiful LO

Morning, I wanted to show you a LO i did for a ugly paper challenge over at . My partner was to send me 2 pieces of UGLY 12x12 paper and one UGLY embellishment to go with it. In return I had to use what I was sent and make a LO with it. Well with out further ado here is my LO's for both August and September.

August UGLY paper and UGLY embellishement:

and here is my creation:

The red circle paper became my title circles and the butterfly lost its feathers.
My niece Kiara was drawing the smurf picture for me so I took her picture while she was drawing hers and scrapped it. She loves purple and flowers.

Now on to my September UGLY papers and UGLY embellishment.

and here is my creation:

Although the papers was fugly the subjects are beautiful. I fussy cut the circle and swirly things and kinda made it into a flower that I put in between my besties daughters, I added a sparkle brad to the middle of it. I then put a color coordinating flower (kinda) by each of the girls. I put a die cut of family as the title above . Bottom right is a paper pieced bird I got in a swap. Bottom left is 3 3-d flowers. Along each side I attached 3 yellow flowers with gold brads. Oh yea the stamp that I have no clue what is I only inked one small triangle and stamped it in all 4 corners. You can barely see it. 

So tell me whatcha think about my UGLIES turning into BEAUTIES?
