Capturing candid moments of Brad with our fur babies is always great. We decided to take the girls to a little league football game. The girls were more interested in getting petted and admired. And of course they had to get daddy’s attention with full on nose and face licks. Good thing that daddy never minds.
After putting the two pictures into a photo collage purchased from the wonderful Kerri Bradford, I wanted to use the perfect paper to highlight these photos. Low and behold, Basic Grey has two new lines that they are offering at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. Introducing Serendipity and Shine On. Normally, paper lines like Basic Grey can only be purchased at scrapbook retailers (with the occasional old line being offered in the big box stores). I purchased both 6×6 paper pads and just about every embellishment. By adding some paper from older Basic Grey I had in my stash and by utilizing my paper layering and embellishment cluster style. Also, a layout is never quite complete without a little stamping.
