Gimmie Some Sugar, baby

This month I had the pleasure of getting my hands on some yummy Sugar Rush papers and embellishments by Basic Grey!!! All of the papers and fabulous embellishments are available at the Croppin' Paradise store right now!

I just love all the colors in this collection, so perfect for any girl in your life.


I, of course, used my favorite butterfly cut from the Indie Art Cricut cartridge and some Basic Grey buttons to adorn them.


The title is Basic Grey chipboard that I painted and inked a bit.


I couldn't resist making another layout of my baby girl. She is SO not a baby anymore, but i'll always call her that! The summer sun really brings out the freckles on her face.


I crumbled up varying sized circles, inked them and then layered them for my lollipop flowers. I also handcut the leaves, crumpled and inked!


Some pretty opaline flourished rounded out the title!


These papers and photos made me long for the days of summer, for sure! Stop by the Croppin' Paradise store to see all the latest in product available right now. We are also having a February online crop called our Conversation Hearts Crop. It starts on February 7th, come check out the forum for all the details. Hope to see you there!
