Hip to be Square

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Mother's Day!  We spent most of the day getting a new dishwasher in because the old one died.  Appliances should work forever, I hate replacing them...but maybe this one will work a bit better.  Anyways....

Today I wanted to share the whole layout that I was talking about last week...the one I created for NSD for BasicGrey.  

Here's the full layout:  

The challenge was to be inspired by one their digital templates.  I chose this one:


Does it look familiar?  If you've been a BasicGrey fan for long, I bet it does!  :)  I just knew I wanted to do this template as soon as I saw it.  You can find all of the BasicGrey digital templates here.

The collection I used for this layout was the fabulous What's Up? collection.  :)  It's so pretty and fun!

Here are some close up's of my layout:

Well there you have it.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Come back tomorrow for some more BasicGrey fun that you won't want to miss!!!

Have a wonderful day!
