Welcome to the BasicGrey Design Team Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the blog of Marinette Lesne.

What can I say... When I was asked to join the Basic Grey design team... I was absolutely over the moon.  Once I came down from my cloud... the thought of playing with the latest and greatest products was nearly overwhelming.  If you've followed me for any length of time, you must know that I am a huge fan of BasicGrey's designs.  I am honored to be a part of this very talented team of designers.




To start my journey with Basic Grey, I played around with the new Lucille collection.  I've always LOVED Lucy!  This collection is a bit vintage with girly reds and pinks!  My card is Clean and Simple but I used a few smaller detail goodies from the collection to build some layers.  I started with a doily type sticker and built up from there by adding a bit of paper, a banner on a hanger and other tags and such. 

To celebrate the new design team, BasicGrey is allowing me to give away a Plumeria Collection pack... (one of my favorites!!) For your chance to win, see the giveaway box below:
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Next, it's time to hop over to Kelly Rasmussen's blog. Remember, if you find a link that doesn't work, you can always hop back to the BasicGrey blog for a list of direct links to all of the blogs in the hop.

I look forward to seeing you again soon!
