More APIT–Basic Grey Cappella

Okay, there is a lesson to be learned from today’s post.  Sometimes, in scrapbooking, it’s okay to NOT follow your gut.  When I first found out that I would be designing with Basic Grey’s Cappella line, I was less than thrilled.  In fact, I was dreading it.  With 2 baby/toddler boys being the center of my scrapbooking, I couldn’t imagine what I would do with elegant, sophisticated wedding papers.  But, I looked through my pictures and ended up with a layout that is one of my personal faves :)
I wish I had taken a close up of my handmade scrunchy flower embelly for you, but alas, I didn’t.
And, as my “extra” item for that kit, I did a second 2-page layout, that I was ridiculously excited about, and I hope it will show you how versatile these papers are–the colors were perfect for this outdoors layout  The pale blue made for some great clouds, the green is a nice muted tree top, and the brown made a nice trunk :) And, even though it’s super simple, this is again one of my new favorite layouts.

So, sometimes in Scrapbooking, it’s better to go against your gut!  Even if something doesn’t really seem to be your style, give it another chance…you might be surprised at what you can come up with and end up with some great projects :)
