Time Flies

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends out there in blog land! Hope your day is filled with lots of fun, family, sunshine, and great memories!

I must of walked by this line a hundred times thinking I would never use it.  It's Basic Grey's Life of the Party.  I always seem to avoid Birthday lines.  I'm not sure why?  It's probably because I don't have kids so birthday parties are not a huge scrapbooking thing for me and for our birthdays my husband and I keep it pretty low key so that means there are rarely any photos.  As I was saying, I pretty much skipped this over because it was a birthday line since it came out.  Then the other day I was at my local scrapbook store looking for paper for these photos.  Yes I did look in my stash first but I couldn't find anything ... or maybe I didn't want to find anything and was looking for an excuse to shop ... who knows!  When I walked by this line the plaid paper caught my attention as the colors were perfect.  When I flipped it over I found it had a wood grain on the back.  Wait a minute!  I look at a couple of others and found they were wood grain too!  Next thing I knew I pulling a bunch of it off the shelf to do this layout (and maybe a couple more).  It seems that lately if it has wood grain, I will love it!  Seems odd, but I think it is because I have a lot of camping photos I need to do. I also find it easy to work with for both masculine and feminine layouts!  So once again Basic Grey has made a line that at first I had no need for and now I must own it!  They do that a lot to me!
