Every scrapbooker with a wax pencil will someday have the misfortune of getting it on the background of their page. Don't panic, there are a few scrapbook techniques you can try to repair the damage. Hitting it with an eraser first up will only spread the damage. Gently dab the mark with a tissue or gently scratch any blobs away with your finger, then rub with a soft white eraser. (Make sure you clean the eraser when you finish.) If this fails to remove all of the blue from your page you can always put a sticker, journaling box or photo mat over the mark.
