Basic Grey Marrakech

Morning everyone. Is anyone else having trouble with losing an hour because of daylight saving time? LOL! Lucky for me my kids are on spring break this week so it's alittle easier to get used to.
Here is a layout that I created using papers from the Basic Grey Marrakech line. I really love the colors of this line, so rich and pretty. I took this photo of my kids on Valentine's Day 2008. Two years ago and I'm just now scrapping it. LOL! I loved how I caught them laughing and playing around so I decided to not even make this layout about Valentine's Day and I love how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come back again.

Basic Grey Lime Rickey Card

The Lime Rickey line is one of my favorite Basic Grey lines. I love all the bright colors and patterns, and the fun embellishments. For this card I picked three different pattern papers and inked all the edges after cutting the right sizes. For my sentiment I used the Lime Rickey chipboard letters and for the little hearts I traced them from the hearts that come with the chipboard letters. The chipboard square is from Bazzill, I simply sprayed it with Glimmer Mist Wild Currant. Think the color is perfect with this line. KaiserCraft pearls finish this card with just the right little accent. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Please stop by again soon. :)

My Mind's Eye bookmark

This is just a fun quick bookmark that I made for my dad. I started with the My Mind's Eye Dreamy 2 Brilliant line and then I added some Maya Road chipboard gears that I inked with Color Box. I outlined the Simply Luxe letter stickers, added my eyelet and the fibers. Fun, simple, quick and it looks great!
