Basic Grey Picadilly Collection

Good Tuesday morning everyone!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Ours was filled with wrestling tournaments, school events, and cleaning out the toy room - busy but productive!  Just how I like it!  LOL!

Today I wanted to share with you a few projects I created recently with the Picadilly collection from Basic Grey.  This is a great spring themed collection.  Flowery but not overly feminine - it's a great collection for those everyday layouts as well. 

For this layout I decided to scrapbook a picture of my sweet little niece Gia.  I created several circular elements on my layout in a visual triangle to lead the eye from my title, to my photo, and down to my journaling.  I used some of the Picadilly Rub Ons on this layout and I just have to say these are so fantastic.  They go on so smoothly and are opaque - so even on a darker colored paper like the red pattern in the bottom left corner, you only see the true green of the rub on leaf.  Love it!

I also created a pair of cards using this collection.  My first card uses one of the adorable chicken Element Stickers.  I just had to add a "punny" sentiment to make this card complete.

And my next card uses another sticker from the Element Sticker sheet.  This one is of a sweet flower.  I added a Stitched Brad to the center and popped the whole thing up with a bit of dimensional adhesive for some extra oomph!
