July's DT Layouts

Remember I was going on about Basic Grey's Junebug a tiny while back? Ooh la, la!!! I got to play with it for SBO DT work (what's another name for work that's more like play!!) I have to admit in the beginning I found it an intimidating collection of beautiful papers to work with. So much gorgeous colour! I think I was trying to tame it but realised I needed to go for broke and truly just play. Check out the tartan 'cos strange as it might seem it goes with everything and it's my favourite paper in the collection. Whoever suggested that it be included with these papers sure knew what they were talking about.
I will take another pic of this l.o one day. My camera is on it's way out. I don't want to over tax it by taking a zillion pics of the same thing to find the perfect one.

Two of my neices, one of whom will be 21 this month.
I can hardly believe it!!

Lunch at Molly's Irish pub! I'd been wanting to 'do' lunch on Christmas Day for years - finally. I can't wait to do it again.

My Fun loving brother and two of my nieces.


This is one of the first LO's I made with Junebug. The circle and 'outer rim' (hmmm, sounds spacey :)) are machine stitched to the Basic Grey background. I had a task figuring out which alpha to use; stuck down white Thickers...nup didn't look right and c a r e f u l l y started to peel them off and argh - am I s'pose to tell you that? I still wasn't happy....perhaps a red font? But somehow the white always looked better so I decided it can stay. Yeah, look at all those e's!!
Merle Sze Yee is my Great Aunt and 1/2 my age. I met her once when she was two or three at a Motel in Te Atatu when my Grandad and his little family were visiting from Singapore, 20 plus years ago. She lives in Canada with her Mum and younger brother now. It would be awesome to meet up with her again.

I hope these pics are ok regarding size. Still working on it when I remember to (insert red faced smiley here). I also have no screen in the back of camera anymore and have to use the little hole in the corner - it's funny how I almost seem to lose my balance when I look thru it.

Yep, you've definitely got the Junebug sussed!

I've had mine since it first arrived at my LSS and haven't used it yet.

Originally bought it to scrap our resident teen's School Ball photos.

I think I just like looking at the papers and don't want to cut them up, lol.

Junebug is my favourite Basic Grey to date.
