Basic Grey Offbeat

This is my favourite Basic Grey range at the moment. I love the slightly old fashioned patterns and the bright colours. I am not usually keen on all the patterns in one range, especially with Basic Grey who has a large set of over 10 patterns. But this range has been very versatile for me, as you can see below. I think I am going to endorse the Basic Grey Offbeat range as being, "suitable for a range of applications!".

This first layout I did for Scrap.n.Crop for Hari Raya/Eid Fitri at the end of this month. There are some other gorgeous layouts in SnC gallery to celebrate this occasion so make sure you take a look.

The photo is a precious one of me and my siblings back in the 70s. We used to visit the grounds of the royal palace (Istana Anak Bukit ) on Hari Raya. The photo is precious because I have so few photos from our childhood.

The second layout shows J learning to sailing. My boys spent a week learning to sail and completed RYA Level I & II. They were in different age groups though. J's group sailed in Laser Picos and looked really competent. H enjoyed the capsizing exercises the most and regale us with tales of how many times he capsized!

I did this layout for Color Combos Galore #88. I have enjoyed seeing Suzanne's LOs on UKS and have been promising to try the combos and I finally did it. I love the unusual combination of colours these girls get us to try.

And last is a photo from our trip to Venice. I think the neat freak in me drew me to photograph these neat rows of gondolas in Venice.

I am so happy, all 3 layouts have just made it onto the Basic Grey gallery. This is the first time I've uploaded. So what do you think ? What is your favourite range this release ?

Oh wow all three of these pages are beautiful. There was I resisting buying any more BG (I have a huge pile already). I had narrowed down my pick of the bunch this release to Urbain Prairie, but now I have seen your work with the Offbeat I'm not so sure!

And what a great page for the colour challenge - so pleased you got around to joining in. the page is so fun, love the little sail boat and such a great way to record your DS's sailing achievements.
