Basic Grey!!

I love my Basic Grey patterned paper...I have from the time they put out their first collection. 5 years later...I'm still loving it. So, I have created two layouts (scraplifts from...somewhere???). The first I did in colors that I use all the time - pinks & browns, with a full color picture. The second in colors that I hardly ever use - orange, grey & black, with a B/W photo. However, both layouts were about my favorite scrapbooking subject - my daughter, Madison! The fact that I was able to use my new Cricut machine so much on these is a plus too.

I am back from vacation (it was awesome & I took a lot of pictures!) & want to share a layout I did right before we left. I entered it into a LSS kit contest...$5.00 got you a package of assorted matching scrapping goodies; then you make a layout using only those goodies, and if you turned the layout back in for the contest, you got your $5.00 back. Well, how can you lose, right? I got a page done & got my $$ back, and had a chance to win a gift certificate to that store. Well, I didn't win the contest (it was a popularity contest anyway...but it was fun!) but I did get picked as the layout of the week at for last week after I downloaded it to their gallery. No prizes, just the happiness of knowing that my layout got picked & some great feedback from the other scrappers at BPM, which is awesome!! So, without further delay, here is my layout:
