Basic Grey Fun!

Hi! I am hosting the Scrap Town Lady Blog today. I have a two page layout with Basic Grey's Lucille to share with you. I have to admit when I first saw this collection and even when I started working with it, I was not crazy about it. Just didn't feel like me, but I took the challenge and played. Guess what? I love how these layouts turned out...I had the perfect photos of a friend's little girl and they worked splendidly with this line. I am glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave this line a whirl. I challenge you to a try a line that's not your style and see what you come up with...chances are you will fall in love with it!

I created a super quick card too, with left over supplies and here's a quick bonus tip...the MFT Die-namics Button border makes the perfect scalloped edge border. I used it on my card and on the second page of my layout. I cut several button borders when I first started creating because I wasn't sure what I wanted quite yet. So after I had what I needed, I just layered the button border behind my papers and I had the cutest scalloped border. Love that...two for one~ Thanks for stopping by!
