March Design Team Gallery Going Up at Scrapgal!

The Manufacturer of the month for Scrapgal 
is Basic Grey. I was given the Lemonade line with a little bit of Junebug to work with. The theme they are using this month is "Back to the Basics".

My first project is a card. Which is pretty basic :) I actually took one of the birds from a Maya Road chipboard album and covered it with BG patterned paper. I painted the wing with some acrylic paint. I was out of pink, so I actually had to do some mixing of red and white :) The eye is a chipboard flower from the June bug line with some bling. The flower sticker is Basic Grey and the alphabet stickers are My Little Shoebox.
I loved doing this layout. A comparison of how much Erin had changed between these two photos. The bottom one taken in January of 2009 when she was 18 months old and I discovered she could climb onto my scrapbook counter :-O The top photo I will admit is staged and taken in June of 2010. Almost 18 months later, right before she turned three. She knows better than to do that now. But when we were looking through photos and saw that one of her at 18 months, I had her get up there for a photo with me right there :)
All product is Basic Grey except the letter stickers. The large vinyl ones are American Crafts. The small blue are Cosmo Cricket, and the small pink My Little Shoebox.
I am in charge of the sketch challenge for March. And let's just say, it to is very basic. This is my first time creating a sketch from scratch ever! :)
And this is the layout to go with it. Lots of Basic Grey Lemonade, except the American Crafts green tulle, and the October Afternoon letter stickers. Sorry for the uneven photo. I just couldn't get that photo on the right to look straight, but it is in real life :)

You can see the rest of the Design Team's work here in the DT manufacturer of the month album.
And the challenges for the month of March are here under Monthly Contests.
Join in if you can for some chances to win Scrapgal cyber gift cards to the store :)
