Hello friends! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, and for my friends in the states, a lovely 4th of July. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and I truly loved our city's fireworks display...but the late night/early morning fireworks from the neighbor kids - night, after night, after night - are getting old. Trying to fall asleep to a chorus of firecrackers right outside your house is not easy. I start to drift off and then another round of fire crackers jolts me wide awake. The topper last night was when a car alarm went off down the road...so yes, I am starting this work week sleep deprived (and longing for a home in the country - away from the noise). Thankfully my cute hubby (gosh I love that man) brought this home for me over the weekend.
Okay, time for the really good stuff. BasicGrey's 2011 Summer release.
If you've been to Kelly Goree's blog recently you already know that BasicGrey has revealed their brand new 2011 Summer releases...can you say YUM?! They are gorgeous, and lucky me had them in my hot little hands not too long ago creating some pages to share after the reveal. Have I told you lately how much I love. my. job!?
I do. I really, really do! So, here we are after the reveal and I have some pages to share.
I created this first page with Indie Bloom. (swoon) I love the bright colors and bold patterns of this collection! The florals are absolutely gorgeous!
Next up is Nordic Holiday. Aren't the snowmen adorable?! This collection also has a great combination of winter and holiday prints.
Little Black Dress is such an elegant collection. At first glance you might think, "wedding collection" but the neutral colors and classic patterns make this collection so versatile! I love that!
And finally, my favorite collection this release (though Indie Bloom is a close second), Picadilly! I love the retro colors and prints of this collection, not to mention the cute little birds and that rooster! Love.
So there you have it, my layouts showcasing BasicGrey's four new collections. Be sure to hop over to Kelly's blog to see all of the papers from these collections as well as Kelly's gorgeous layouts!
