A Monday Mini

I had the best intentions of updating over the weekend, but the journaling took a little longer than I thought it would. I also got sidetracked with another project. I frequently work on multiple things at the same time. I get a little sad when my desk is completely cleared off, it normally means I've got creative block. Not a problem now, I've got 3 things on here.
We had a really good 4th of July. J and I went to the neighbors, my cold seems a lot better. That was a weird cold for sure. J got to jump in a moon bounce thing and he ate cake. We didn't stay long, I could tell it was a lot for a little guy. He didn't make it until the sun went down, so he didn't see the fireworks. But we did hear them. All the way until midnight. :(
I have a fascination with Basic Grey. I have some paper from most lines all the way back to Motifica (and if you know what I'm talking about, I feel sorry for us both.) I'm a hoarder of my BG and I am now only allowed to buy what I have an actual idea for. I love Lime Rickey, and I allowed myself 7 sheets-1 piece of the patterned paper and 6 of the solid colors. I wish wish I had gotten all of it. I would not have had to be so creative about using what little I had in this album. I really, really love this line. Note to self: In the future don't be cheap with the Basic-ness of the Grey. :) 






Supplies: Basic Grey Lime Rickey Collection; Basic Grey White Chocolate Alphas; Pink Paislee Fascinating Rub-ons, Sassafrass Lass chipboard Numbers; Ethan's album Cosmo Cricket.
Thanks for looking! Happy Monday to you. Until tomorrow.

Oh its SOOOO cool!
I am a collector of BG too. Tried to be good about Lime Rickey, but bought most of it. Same prob with Sassafras. Have to have it, but too pretty to chop up.

But I really love how the pp just POPS in this mini. So I think it actually worked out to your advantage to not have 6 more pp to choose from.

I also have BG sheets dating back to Motifica. sigh. What can I say? I often don't use my fave sheets... saving them for what? Oy
Great album, btw

Clearing throat here, and getting ready to admit that I know exactly what Motifica is - have some in my hoarded collection. Keep telling myself I'll use it for just the right project some day. Yeah! That's why I could probably go a full year with no new stuff and still use all papers I love.

Your mini is wonderful!
