The Little Monkeys Are Singing the Blues

This month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is pale blue.  I started this week with the 2.5 inch scrap bin and pulled what looked like pale blue to me at the time and some neutrals to make HSTs for these Little Monkey blocks. 

I think if you put some rowdy colors next to the pale blues they don't look so pale anymore. Obviously several of these don't have pale blue HSTs but they were in the 2.5 scrap box and blue so might as well use them up while I'm on a roll. 

With the left over HSTs that weren't wonky I made an 8 inch Depression block and a couple of pinwheels. 

For inspiration on a wide variety of scrappy blue projects visit Scrap Happy Saturday at the SoScrappy blog.

Great depression block. I think any blue counts this month and you have some great baby blues to play with.

Love the monkey blocks--I have very few--if any--light blues it seems--just darker ones...I guess I'll take a page from your book and add to my scrappy strippies in the few ones I have...lovely posting, Julierose
