For all you Sew Scrappy Happies

This is for all my sew scrappy happy people out there - BasicGrey is offering yet another contest and his time it's for YOU!

As was announced in our March newsletter, BasicGrey is having a FABULOUS FABRIC contest and here are the details:
Smell something sweet? It’s contest time here at BasicGrey and this one offers three opportunities to win! Enter our card, layout or album/altered category by uploading your entry into the BG gallery online using “Fabric Contest” as the subject line. Entries must use fabric (any brand or style) in creative, innovative and beautiful ways. A winner in each category will receive a Sultry™ fabric “Sweet Roll” (1” x 36” strips of all 40 fabrics) and a 40-piece set of 5” x 5” fabric squares. This fabulous fabric contest begins 3/5/09 and ends 3/18/09. Winners will be announced in our April newsletter. Fabric — make it your new favorite embellishment!

So hurry and enter to win! We can't wait to see what you can do with fabric!

And speaking of the March newsletter, I want to send a huge thanks to Suzy West, Kristina Proffitt and Joy Uzarraga for lending their talents to us this month! You ladies did a fabulous job and I hope everyone will check it out! And one last thing before I head out for the day to enjoy this beautiful weather we're having (Sunny & 75 - yay!!!), I'll leave you with the two projects that were my contribution to this month's newsletter.

The first is from Becky's sketch and features the line LIME RICKEY which will be shipping in just a couple of weeks.

This is Carson and his frog wellies - the kid can't get enough! But I have to tell you, it's even better when he wears them with shorts! ;)

The next one is featuring my favorite line from our Winter release. I adore it because it's so very versatile. This is Marrakech used on a layout about my Turner at six. (These were his six-year-old portraits).

Have a fabulous day!

Stunning, Kelly. That is the deepest blue I've ever seen in the Marrakech collection. It makes that LO just pop!

Hi Kelly,
It was so great to meet you at the Scrapbook Cafe on Saturday night :) I'm bummed I didn't see your post sooner about the fabric contest...what a cool challenge!
I love Carson's wellies, my son has the same ones and he loves to put them on with his "feetsie "pajamas! Boys are just too funny :)
Take care and hope to see you at the SB Cafe again!
