So Thankful....

My Basic Grey Page of the Month kit for October arrived from my scrappy club The Scrap Room I am a HUGE fan of Basic Grey, it was the first line of paper I bought when I started scrapping and would now be the mainstay of my paper collection!!!

This months papers were the gorgeous Pyrus collection and the sample layout that came with it was stunning so I set about scrap lifting it :o)  I love the POTM kits as it contains everything you will need to create a layout and there is always loads left so that you can do another layout or 3!!!

Gorjuss Girls meet Basic Grey...........

So its been a while since I made cards but the old mojo kicked in last night when I came across some gorjuss girl images that I had coloured in using Distress Inks (love this technique). This little lady is one of my favourites, she is just sooooo pretty and I figured that the orange was bright enough so after a root through my stash I decided to mount her on some Basic Grey Basic Manila paper that I got from Cardz n Scrapz.  I added some ribbon and a cherry blossom and she was finished.

I then teamed another of the wee girls with some Basic Grey papers from the Basic Grey Lemonade collection (also from Cardz n Scrapz), added some gems and ickle flower blossoms and another card was done.

thanks for peeking!!!
