Happy Daze-Indian Summer kit

My Happy Daze kit consisted of 2 sheets of patterned paper and 2 half sheets of patterned paper which is great because it keeps the cost of the kit down to you and gives you more choice of papers and patterns to play with!!

It also included a full page of matching chipboard, buttons and brads from the Basic Grey Indian Summer range and an explosion of colour to boot!!

My First Layout is called Fall in Love and it's more about my feelings rather than Georgias...I'm not entirely sure that she likes throwing leaves in the air as she often has her eyes closed, now whether thats with the effort or she's worried about getting bits in her eyes I don't know!!

I made me a cute tree and was thrilled with how it turned out...I thought only quirky scrappers could make these!!! How wrong was I?

I had so much Chipboard left over that I just had to make a second layout!! This time I used the same shape for the base but cut up my Pizza Box instead!!

I really like how the orange and brown acrylic has worked with the bronze rustic and autumnal.

I added some droplets of Glossy Accents onto the circle bits on the chipboard to create some texture.

..and another cool birdie to finish it off!!

Basic Grey Indian Summer co-ordinating kits can be purchased starting from only £5.25 HERE

Love and leaves

Pizza box looks brilliant. And the Autumnal colours are beautiful. Like the texture with the glossy accents and the gorgeous tree too. Another fab couple of layouts.

Ruth - you've tempted me to get my scrap booking supplies back out of the storage box they've been living in for the last few years! I'm going to make a Christmas recipe album and its all your fault lol

It's a joy to visit thank you for your inspiration.
