Basic Grey


Welcome to the BasicGrey Design Team Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the blog of

Kathleen Summers
I am  totally thrilled  and incredibly humbled to be offered a second term with BasicGrey. It really has been a dream come true this last 12 months and I am excited about the year ahead and gaining some inspiration from the other fabulous DT members.
Today I wanted to share a layout I made using the gorgeous new Serenade collection from BasicGrey.
This layout documents the name my eldest gave to my youngest when he was a baby because he couldn't pronounce the L sound correctly.


Although I have boys and mostly scrap my boys I love how the soft muted colour pallete combines almost a grungy feel to the papers and embellishments, making it suitable for my boys! The banner pieces from the elements sheets are defintely my favourite, I adore how each banner piece is different but they work together beautifully!
To celebrate the new design team, BasicGrey is allowing me to give away some goodies from the Picadilly collection. For your chance to win, see the giveaway box below :

I like to get inspiration for all types of projects so it is difficult to narrow it down to anything specific. I like to see the diversity that comes from other minds! Thanks so much for your inspriation!

Love the LO & the subject of it! :) So sweet! I'm always looking for two page LOs!! I have TONS of pics I want scrapped & so many LOs are just single page...sometimes it's nice to see a whole 2-pg LO & not have to always come up with the other half! :) Congrats on another DT term!!
