Basic Grey Marjolaine layouts for Generations Crafting.

Helloooooooo fellow scrappers.. 
Last year was so blessed having met Floren Boynton over at Generations Crafting and being invited to join her Design Team.. During the beginnins of this year, I've been playing with some of the paper collections she sent me to work with.. Basic Grey Marjolaine being one of them.. 
Honestly! the color palette scared me just a little bit,  but once I started going through the papers and pairing them off into several groups, I actually think I love this collection most of all..  I'm so happy that I got knocked out of my comfy zone and was forced to challenge myself with some new colors and prints that I normally wouldn't of bought..
So, with that said here are a few layouts and some close ups, of this collection..

I used some Prima flowers on this layout, The big white ones and the brown Rossetti.. The smaller white flower and brown ones are from Ranger.
I hand made the ribbon rosetti and used lots of  Basic Greys new glazed brads..I also did some heat embossing on the upper left hand corner.. Some butterflies and flourish by Tim Holtz and used white embossing powder.  I also added one embossed butterfly onto the tag.
The white flourish, title and light blue leaves were cut using my cricut..
here are a few close ups:

This layout was published in the Basic Grey Gallery
 and then for other layout I made using the same collection.. I'm really happy how different they look even though the papers are from the same collection..
the design of the layout below isn't my own.. I was browsing around the internet one night and came upon a beautiful layout similar to this one...I've embellished it completely differnt, so it looks as if we used the same sketch..LOL

Here is the layout:

For this layout, I used Prima flowers and Basic Grey Glazed brads.. I also had some Prima bling in my stash that I though was perfect for this layout.
I had some what of a hard time coming up with a title and then I found this title over at scrapbook.com in their referance are.. Its a great place if you need some help coming up with a title..
and for some close up:

So, thats the two layouts I created using the same paper collection from Basic Grey (Marjolaine).. I also created a mini album with it.. should be able to locate that by clicking HERE.. 
Generations Crafting is having a great sale on this Marjolaine collection, so if you like what you see and you'd like to create something similar for your scrapbook, then do stop by GC and check out what she has left.. I know these will be flying out of her store...
thank you ladies so much for looking and I hope you have a great and creative week..
