Back To School with Basic Grey!

Morning folks,
Well it's a quick post from me today as super busy getting ready for my final workshop of the week. Phew it has been a busy but enjoyable week with lots of lovely ladies coming along to create a shaped card and box which I promise I will post a pic of very soon.
But for now it is time for another challenges over at Basic Grey Challenges and this time the theme is 'Back To School' and remember whatever you make you must include a product from Basic Grey.
I used a fab sketch from Mojo Monday which gave me loads of scope for showing off lots of designs from the stunning Oxford paper pad from BG. I couldn't resist teaming these with the equally gorgeous Mo Manning stamp 'Oxford' (don't you just love it when a plan comes together!)
The yummy clock die is from Marianne D and the sentiment is LOTV. I coloured the lovely Oxford with my trusty Pro's and then distressed everything with Pumice Stone DI.

I am entering Oxford into the following challenges:
ABC - ABC41 'Lot's of Layers'
Mojo Monday - #307 'Sketch by Julee'

Ok well that's all from me for now but hopefully I'll be back a little sooner than last time!

Basic Grey - Weather

Morning folks,
Well the sky is looking a little threatening here in our little corner of the UK today and Mr. Sunshine does not look like he's gonna make an appearance anytime soon sadly!
Anyway on a happier note it is time for another fab challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges and this time the theme is 'Weather' so sunshine, snowflakes or rain it's up to you but remember you MUST use a Basic Grey product somewhere on your project.

I chose a very neglected Gorjuss stamp of mine and really enjoyed colouring her. I created the large umbrella by piecing together lots of patterned DP's from Basic Grey's Lemonade and Piccadilly collections. The clouds are from Memory Box and the sentiments are from Hero Arts.
Well I can't wait to see your take on the weather theme and thanks for popping by!

Big Hugs
