I wanted to do one more layout for kylies album before I give it to her tonight...and I remembered that I had not scrapped these photos from their holiday last year. BG Marrakech was ideal...funnily enough!! so I used up what I had left to make this page. I have left the journaling area empty as I want her to write her own.

Really looking forward to to trade show at the NEC, so will get to "touch and stroke" all the new delish things on offer...let you know tuesday how I got on!!

Basic Grey Marrakech

So my stash ban did not last as long as it should have but its all Basic Greys fault!! I have had this photo since last summer and with a quite bright blue and orange in it, its been a devil to match papers to.....well thats my excuse!! So when I saw the Marrakech range by BG at CHA last month, I had to have it and the whole collection pack as it would have been rude to have just a few papers from the collection....I might have missed something..hehe! I have noticed alot of retailers now are not stocking the entire range of all the BG paper ranges and I can see why...there are usually 4 collections at a time (although BG are splitting the releases in 2 the others in a few months time) there are lots of 12x12 papers then you have all the embellishments as well. By getting the collection pack you get all the papers and sticker sheet plus an alphabet and it does not take up anywhere as much room in a shop as having everything it helps with their costs.

Anyway back to the layout....everything on the page came from the pack except the American Craft thickers I used for the title.

Took another dive into my crate of kits yesterday and I managed to get another two done for my sons girlfriends album. I gave Kylie an album last year but not had a chance to do many layouts to go in it, so as its her birthday this week ,I thought I would concentrate on layouts for her this week...and she can have them as part of her present.

This was a scrapagogo kit...there was a book with it but in all the mess my rooms been in, its seems to have developed legs! so I went with my own idea. The scalloped Bazzill was in the kit with the Crate papers and dies cuts. The rub on is from Basic Grey and is my own and the flowers are just from my stash. The ribbon came with the kit.

Had an great day today taking a scrapbooking crop where I did a layout and the girls brought their own stash to replicate it....I did two pages with a very similar layout but used different styles of paper. In the layout "21" the papers and numbers are from Scenic Route and the clear buttons are from Stampin'Up!. In "Little one" the papers are from the Imaginisce Baby powder range as is the stamp and the brad buttons. The flourishes are from Sizzix and the flowers are a retro daisy punch.
