So for todays project, I would like to share with you some layouts that I recently made using some Basic Grey lines available in the store: Wander and Curio.

I just love the bright colors of the Wander papers.  I was inspired by a challenge on another site to use a childs book as inspiration for your page.  When I took this photo of Charlotte, I knew exactly what book to use!  It's called "Pajama Time" by Sandra Boynton, and it is one of her favorites!  We read it almost every night.


And here is my page:




All the papers except the dark grey background paper (MME) are Basic Grey.   I backed each paper and my photo with black cardstock to give them each a border.



I had originally intended to punch some star shapes in my background paper and back it with different color papers for stars.  But I found out I don't own a star punch...how does that happen?
So instead, I used some old blue felt stars I found in my stash.  The red ones are from BG Basics collection (I think they are called tabs or something..), and I inked them red. The yellow stars and the moon are cut from canvas and sprayed with dark yellow mist and covered with paper to match.

I added some of our favorite lines from the book on some BG stickers from the Basics line.



Next up I used some of the BG Curio line.  I love the vintage look of these papers, so what better to use than an old photo! 

This is my mom in 1966. I show people this photo and many of them think it is me....I don't think we look that much alike!



Can you believe how real this lace printed paper looks???  I pleated it and added some stitching to give it more depth.  I made the muslin flower myself! 


I used a lot of the embellies that went with this line, too, including the canvas tags, chipboard pieces, and brads.



Well, thanks for stopping by today!!!

Audrey, as always you are an inspiration. My daughter loves those books also and I have been brainstorming on how to incorporate them into a page. My daughters fav is the Perfect Piggies and her fav babies happen to be pigs. You gave me some great ideas from your layout. So cute! I love it.
