Basic Grey Oliver Page Kit

I’ve been having lots of fun with the Basic Grey Oliver line lately.  I bought the card kit, collection pack and page kit for the line! 
This is the first Basic Grey page kit I’ve used and I’m really happy with it!  It was super easy to use and included lots of goodies ~ from rub-ons to chipboard!  The only items I added were thread (I did some sewing throughout), ink and buttons.
It was a fun afternoon project to do with my sister, too!  We each bought a kit and had a quick craft day together. 
I’m so glad that Basic Grey started selling page kits this year.  I’ve been a fan of their card kits for a long time, too.  I’m excited to see what they come up with next!

Two Little Monkeys, Jumping in a Box

I really like this picture (I think the charm of my lovely, lovely son picking his nose and his cousin covering his eyes when I brought out the camera really reveals their personalities) and had lots of fun with this layout. 
These boys are very colorful characters and I wanted to capture that with a bright layout.  I used lots of paper from the Recollections Monkeying Around line that I picked up from Michaels.
 
I was in a mood to embellish, so that’s just what I did! 
I added some stitching around the round “patches” of paper and the little monkeys chipboard title.  I also added lots of hand-sewn buttons and some brads.  The picture is framed with a happy Daisy D’s rub-on.
