#16 was a still from B.o.B ft. Taylor Swift’s “Both Of Us” music video. It’s an amazing song/video.
Thanks! I couldn’t figure that one out.
Amaaaazing compilation of photos:)
I’m always so glad you post the background photos of each month! I loved the butterfly photo background so much, so now I can save it to my computer and look at it forever. :)
SO EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL!
I LOVED the backgrounds from this month! They just stood out to me as being particularly lovely. :)
I really liked February’s colours!
Amazing backgrounds, saved a couple huehue
I love #26. This has become my favorite part of the end of the month since I found Rookie.
I really likes the “Flower Colours” picture even though that spelling of colors bothers me immensely. I don’t know why.
Also, that Taylor Swift & B.o.B. song is pretty odd, don’t you think? Taylor is all graceful & pretty-sounding then B.o.B. is like RAP RAP RAP RAP RAP. It’s a weird mix.
Beautiful pictures as always!
