Your Laugh is Contagious.....Basic Grey.....

In my last post, I wrote about my "style" as prompted for an online challenge.  In it I mentioned that I am not a very linear person---everything has to be slightly messy/wonky or I feel wierd--however, I had just completed a very linear, clean layout which totally proves my style is ever changing!  Here it is:

Very neat, non-messy and I love it!  Putting this together I wanted the focus to be solely on the enlarged photo and I thought that a simple, clean layout would achieve that.

I actually had a lot of fun working with these products from Basic Grey's Kissing Booth line.  I think part of it has to do with the fact that there is a lot of brown and pink in my daugter's wardrobe:-).  Really, everything came together super fast. 

When working with Basic Grey, I tend to find that a little bit goes a long way paperwise. The border strips I used were super great because they had all the finishing touches that I like to add without me having to do any of the work--sewing, layering.  I did alter them slightly though:  On the bottom strip I popped the button off, added a canvas flower, and stapled on some pink twine.  For the top border strip above the photo, I cut it into a smaller piece, trimmed the red fabric off, and stapled two canvas hearts onto it. 

Well, off to do a little bit of scrapping while baby is asleep!



  1. What a cute layout--your kids are so adorable!
