Basic Grey Challenge




This week the challenge on the Basic Grey challenge site is to use elements from two different basic grey collections. Here, I used papers from the Phoebe and Dasher collections. The butterfly is a kwikutz die borrowed from a friend (isn't it beautiful), the border is done with my new Martha Stewart punch that an online friend very kindly got for me and mailed to the UK. Thanks Jess. The sentiment circle is from the Cutting Cafe, backed with a nestabilities scallop circle, and the black scrolls are by Sandylion.
I am packing my case to go down to London tonight, looking after little Max for four days, so no crafting for me, although I have a word book to make for a friend and plan to take down all the stuff to do that, although it will be a miracle if I remember everything I need. I will probably get set up and realise that I have forgotten something really basic, like my trimmer. Hmmm, I feel a list coming on.....................
