BasicGrey is one of the great vendors that we have at Scrapbook USA. They are also an awesome company!

Basic Grey Herb and Honey Collection

Hello and good morning..

It's Wendi here! We are just 1 week until Expo time! Basic Grey is just one of the wonderful vendors we will see at the show this year!

 I'm sharing a layout with you using Basic Grey's Herbs and Honey collection. I completely fell in love with the colors from this line and had tons of fun using it.

I created this page with a photo from Mother's Day a couple of years ago with my three little bunches of love.

I knew I wanted to use the strawberries sticker elements and when I saw them I thought of bunches of strawberries, which inspired my title on the page:

I LOVED the arrow journaling stickers and added tons of distressing through out my page:

I used just a bit of mist and added some splats  too:

Make sure to see what other fun collections that Basic Grey has... They lines are always wonderful to work with...

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

Other supplies: Mister Huey mist, Sharpie pen.
