Design Team Inspiration and another Basic Grey Sneak!

Happy Friday! TGIF! You know what I just realized? My kids only have one week of summer vacation left! Where has the time gone? My kids have one of those semi-yearly school calendars. They only get 8 weeks of summer vacation, but they get a fall break, their Thanksgiving break is actually a week long instead of just two days, another 2 weeks off at Christmas and 2 weeks off for spring break! It's better for memory retention and it works for us too (much less boredom!!!)

Okay, now for some Basic Grey Inspiration from our very talented designers!

Family by Designer Andra Hoffman

Andra used the fun new Basic Grey Olivia collection for this layout! Love all the pinks and the pattern on the bottom! Oh, and check out that gorgeous Prima butterfly! Great work, Andra!

Party by Designer Sandi Clarkson

Sandi created this layout using the Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection and Basic Grey Doilies. Sandi actually created this for the doily challenge I suggested over at StuckOnUSketches! I love her use of the doilies not only as the background for her photo, but also as the greenery at the base of her flower! Great work, Sandi! Isn't her granddaughter just the cutest little thing?!

A Grandmother's Love Blooms Forever by Designer Nanne Harry

Nanne used the gorgeous Basic Grey Indian Summer Paper and Doilies also for the doily challenge at SOUS! Love the colors, love the sketch, love those handmade roses! Nanne is going to have to teach me how to make those! Great work, as usual, Nanne!
