Good morning everyone! It's time for the reveal of my first layout for October. This month, I was assigned Basic Grey's Persimmon collection.
It's a wonderful fall-ish themed line with beautiful patterns and florals without being too theme-y. Perfect for anything from fall traditions, to Halloween, to Thanksgiving.
For my first layout, I wanted to scrap these pictures of my son, Liam, in his scary monster pajamas. The colors in this line are absolutely perfect! And when I saw the sticker that said "Eat, drink & BE SCARY", I knew I had to use it with these photos. Usually, it's really hard for me to start the first layout using a collection pack. I almost always use patterned paper for the background, and it's so hard to decide which papers should be cut up or be the background. For this layout, I knew immediately the triangle pattern would be perfect for these pictures - the triangles almost look like monster teeth! But I thought it was a little too busy so I added the orange patterned paper behind the photos to calm the layout down a bit!
I absolutely love that the Basic Grey collection kits come with a variety of letter stickers, great for changing up fonts for the title! And there you go... my layout!
