Hopscotch Basic Grey POTM - Feb 2011

Happy Tuesday Morning! and Welcome to GabyCreates.Com
Today I have created Basic Grey's Two-Page Feb 2011 POTM  using
their oh! so cute Hopscotch collection.
Basic Grey and BG POTM is my first Craft Love!  I try to stick to
the instructions given most of the time, but I do like adding my own twists here and there.

My Twists:
The instructions included are pretty easy to follow and detailed, but they leave to your
discretion how or how many embellishments you use and where you place them.
1-Added floss to some of the buttons.
2-Inked every piece with distress ink.
3-Added faux stitches in addition to the ones pictured on instruction sheet.
4-Instead of using the letters included, I used BG micro chipboard letters.  I inked them, added embossing ink and embossed with holographic embossing powder.
5-I hand wrote the word grandmas with embossing pen and added embossing holographic powder.
6-I stamped the little cell phone.
I almost forgot to mention that the owners of Happy N Scrappin' are so generous that you get two sheets of each paper required to complete your layout, even if you only need a piece of one sheet!!!

Thanks for visiting!   I will be showcasing Imaginisce's Garden Party and Enchanted Collections in addition to MM's Je t'Adore Collection!  for Happy N Scrappin'.  They are gorgeous collections!!
