BasicGrey's April Newsletter

...is now available for viewing by clicking here!

This month we featured the gorgeous Lime Rickey line which should be arriving at stores near you any day now (if it hasn't already)! Lime Rickey will be perfect for all those spring and summer layouts that just scream for color. Here is a sample project I did for the intro section of the newsletter to show just that. It documents probably one of my favorite days/moments ever. I loved coming across this hot air balloon on the way home from a birthday party for my stepdad. But if I loved it, Mr. Carson loved it that much more!

The newsletter also featured our fabric contest winners - those projects were AMAZING! - as well as our monthly sketch column by Becky Fleck. This is my contribution to that sketch featuring the Wisteria line.

I want to give a huge thank you to Alicia Giess, Kendra McCracken and Kimber McGray for their contributions to this month's sketch as well. They did an incredible job! Thanks again, ladies!! :) If you still aren't registered to receive the newsletter so that it comes to your inbox every month, you can do so simply by clicking here!

And one last thing - don't forget to leave a comment on the post below to be entered to win one of two Coordinates Collections kits that I will be giving away! You must get your comment in by Friday at Midnight Eastern time!

Happy Hump Day!

Oh gosh, I have been waiting for the Lime Rickey for a long time now... I had heard it was coming to stores in April, so I went looking for it yesterday, but it wasn't in... I was so sad! The other lines are beautiful, as well, but I REEEEALLY want the Lime Rickey :)

The clouds on that serendipity lo made me smile. I'm going to find a reason to add that to one of my pages soon. Thanks, as always, for the inspiration!
