Anyway, back to BasicGrey. I kept thinking about when I first started scrapbooking and realised that this was a tiny story that hadn't been told. And as it so happens, I still had some of the very first items I ever bought so the two came together quite nicely. What didn't gel so well was the design of the page. But never mind...
I write about the first time I went to a shop selling scrapbook supplies and how I fell in love with it right there and then. I saw and bought my first BasicGrey on that day and the hoarder that I am, I still had a full sheet of tags and a mini-book thing that I decided had to be used today. The mini-book was falling apart (from age!) and so I cut it apart and used it on my layout to house my journalling and also my little accordion book of photos which are hidden underneath featuring the first 4 layouts I ever made and my most recent four. (What a difference!) I challenged myself to use all the tags and just made a collage at the bottom of the page with lots of loopy twine and popped my title there.
I feel that something is needed directly below the journalling and the top left corner is awfully bare compared to the jumble of the rest of the page - any ideas?
This is definitely not the best layout I've ever made but it includes product that is about to celebrate its 6th anniversary and records a turning point in my crafty endeavours. Job done!
