Get Picky & Basic Grey

I love this months sketch over at Get Picky  and have ended up combining it with a challenge over on the Basic Grey blog, with is a double up challenge....to use paper/embellishments from at least 2 Basic Grey ranges, with 2 photos & a 2 word title.

I recently re-discovered/found a heap of my old BG collections in the back of the cupboard.....and I mean OLD.  I still have a heap of papers from Vagabond, Skate Shoppe, Lily Kate, Blitzen, Sub Lime, Oh Baby, Black Tie......so these are now in with the rest of my stash where I plan to start using them (because BG never goes out of date!).... rather than hidden in the back of the cupboard!


So, here is the sketch....




And here is my take on it......using up some of those BG collections :)




I've used papers from Sublime, Skate Shoppe, Blitzen & Out of print....Alpha stickers from the Vagabond collection, Office tab from Curio, Brad from Oxford...and another Brad, I think from the Marrakech collection.....plus a few Prima, Kaisercraft & Manor House flowers, and a really old Fancy Pants chipboard flourish.....and A Lil Somethin butterfly & ticket.

And a few close ups...




Loved using up some of that old stash!

Thanks for dropping by...and I hope everyone has a great week :).  xx
