Loving the earthy colours of Origins

A friend reminded me today that it's been three days since I last blogged.

I'm having fun in my Guest Stylist role over at Scrap Boutique. In January Chels sent me some of the gorgeous Basic Grey Origins range to work with, and these are the layouts I created:










These layouts are on the store homepage this week. I just love the colours, so perfect for me with the browns, greens, yellows and earthy tones.

I've done one more layout using this range, but I can't show anyone just yet.

In the meantime, I made this bookmark for the Monday colour challenge over at the Design Dollies. No Origins in this one (though I was tempted!) The colours this week are kraft, ivory and green:



I used some Prima packaging (just love it so much!) and a tag that I got in a Scarlet Lime kit in 2008.
