Monday Inspiration

Well, my kids are off to school now! No pictures - with an (almost) 16 year-old junior and an 11 year-old in 6th grade, the last thing they want is mom hovering over them with a camera! The days of getting them in their chairs on the first day of school are gone! That's okay - I'll find new ways to torment them -- after all, isn't that our job as parents?! LOL!

Here is a little Monday inspiration for you from Designer Teri Berrios using the Basic Grey Kioshi collection!

Simply Sweet by Designer Teri Berrios

Teri created this layout of her daughter when she was a baby. The pastels of the Kioshi collection were a perfect match for her theme. Teri used a white-wash technique using white acrylic paint and water to tone down the colors even more. She also added some Kioshi Bloomers, Prima Pearls and those gorgeous lavender crocheted flowers to finish the look! Fabulous!

We are expecting the new Basic Grey Wander, Pyrus and Jovial later this month! Make sure you are signed up for your product notifications and be the first to find out when these collections will be available!

Happy Crafting!
