Winner plus new giveaway!!

Thank you to all of you that added Scrap A Little as a friend on Facebook!
I just want to clarify something; Facebook is not at all a requirement. If you don't like Facebook that's perfectly fine.
I just thought it would be a great way for me to interact with all of you.
If you don't have FB and read my blog you will not miss anything. I promise!

I also want to say thanks for all your sweet comments! It really makes my day and warms my heart. I have too many days when I don't think I'm any good at all:( So when I read your nice words I'm thinking; if all these people think I'm that great, I can't be all that bad, can I? So again, thank you!

I drew a random winner for the latest giveaway that you can see here. And the winner turned out to be;

Dawn Montagano. Congrats to Dawn!!
Please email me your address at scrapalittle@gmail.com so I can you send you the K and Co papers:)

Yesterday, I had my scrappy friends over and we worked on the Basic Grey kits. I made these two layouts:




Don't you just love those old photos. It's my mom in 1966 and me and mom in 1967.

And guess what? I have an extra kit leftover so I thought one lucky reader could win it.


If you want to have a chance to win this gorgeous page kit from Basic Grey, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. And please tell me what photos you would use.
Me and my friends all ended up scrapping old photos, because it works so well with the colors.
So if you had this kit, tell me what photos you would scrap.
Pin It!

I have my parents old albums with lots of photo including baby photos of me, and I think I would take one of those, perhaps me, aged nearly two on the big farm horse my parents used fo work.

Beautiful LOs - you look like your Mum :) For me I think I would do some outdoors photos from the park in the autumn as the colours would go really well.

Your Lo is so sweet...those are pix to be cherished. I would use old photos of my Gram and mom, and of my gram and me that I have still tucked away.

Two gorgeous layouts, Helen! I love that vintage feeling of them both.
I think I'd work with a B/W photos. Either of my self as a baby/little girl, or of my boys.
Anyway, I think those pages goes perfectly with vintage, old look.

And you're really great....:)))

Thank you.

Styme123 said...

I have some old photos of my great Aunt and Grandmother when they were in there early 20's. I think this paper would go great with those shots of them.

Kelly Toth said...

I will most likely go with some old photos of my mom also.

Emma said...

Beautiful layouts :) I think I would use photos of my mother and father on their honeymoon with these papers.

carol said...

I have four daughters, so I could find many uses for these beautiful supplies.

April said...

I would defnitely use these for my daughter. I love these shabby pages for my own album, and it's so hard for me to find anything like this around me. They're gorgeous. I love your layouts too. Your photos pick up the colors in the paper. You have a great eye. I'd love for you to look at my layouts too, if you have time :) http://www.SweetlyScrappedArt.blogspot.com It would be cool to hear what you have to say :)

Beverly said...

I've got 4 of my Mom's photo albums to scrap and I'm thinking some pics of her and her siblings when they were younger would be perfect for this kit! Thanks for sharing!

shellybob said...

I love what you did with those. Great idea to use old photos. I have some pictures of my mom and dad in younger years that I would use.

Anonymous said...

I love your layouts! I've got many photos of my parents and families, so if I were to win this, I'd use it for them. Again, your layouts are beautiful...TFS!

Love, love those layouts and of course the papers are fantastic. I can tell you they are perfect for older pictures, and I have pictures of my mom and dad in their early 20's and I am in my mid 60's so they are old pics and in great shape, they are also in a sepia tone which I think would match perfectly with these papers.
I cannot say enough about how I love your layouts and both you and mom are absolutely beautiful.....

Kelly Massman said...

Oh, how pretty (your layout) and the BG stuff. I would use old pictures of my family or my twin sister and me! Thanks for a chance to win!

Elisabeth said...

Wow. I love your layouts and I would love to win the kit! I realized that I have scrapped lots and lots of other people, but rarely myself. I would like to scrap by confirmation photo and the one from my baptism!

Ann Edwards said...

I have some photos of my youngest granddaughter as an infant that I haven't scrapped that I think would be perfect for this kit. Your layouts are so pretty...the photos are beautiful!

Amanda Valentin said...

Thanks for this awesome giveaway! I would use pictures of my grandmother from the late 50's- early 60's for her tribute album. She passed away in 2002 and I was given tons of old photos of her since I was close to her.

EileenMV said...

I would scrap family pictures from my childhood!!!

JanShore said...

My Mom recently made copies of old pics (don't you sort of hate to use "old" and then relate it to yourself?!)of me and my brothers, ones she did not scrap....I would use some of those!

Diane said...

I would use some special pictures of my grandparents with me. They raised me most of my life and now they are both gone and I would love to show my grandchildren two wonderful people who helped mold my life. Thanks for a change to win.

Carole Bryson said...

Cindy d said...

I'm eventually going to work my way backwards and do some heritage photos. I'd probably use them for that.

DWD said...

These are beautiful papers. Wish I knew how to colorize black & white photos. All my childhood photos are b&w and I hate them. Would love to see them in color.

I would use these papers to scrap my 4 1/2 yr old granddaughter, my 4 yr old neice and 3 yr old great neice. They have lots of matching outfits and these papers would be great for these girls.

Scrapenabler said...

Wow, such great layouts. This would definately inspire me to scrap some of my older photos as the paper works so well with them.

i simply love these basic grey papers.. they are so versatile.. i would use sepia photos of my sisters and i or my daughters and i or even my mum.. they are gorgeous for a feminine layout with an ageless feel..xx

SMScraft said...

These Basic Grey papers are beautiful, and I would use photos of my Mom, Mom-in-Law and myself at an awards banquet when I received the 1997 "Women Helping Women: Making a Difference for Women" Award from Soroptimist International, in Anaheim, CA. It was a special day, and I was delighted to share it with both of my Moms!

Dawn said...

oooh these papers are so pretty, I would scrap some vintage photos, or maybe some b&w of my daughter. Your pages are great I love the vintage photos, theres just something about that time period. I love it.

JANLYNN said...

I have some pictures of iris blooming in my yard that would look quite lovely with this paper. I try to go to our local iris society plant sale every year and buy a couple of new species. Some of the people in this group actually hybridize their stock and come up with new varieties themselves so I have several different colors and bloom shapes.

mow180 said...

I would use pictures of my Mom with the sweet memories kit. She was a gardener right up until the day she dies at 94 years old. Roses were her favourites. I miss her very much and this lovely paper would do her justice.

Mdegraeve said...

I would scrap pictures of my mom, especially the ones when she would dress up for going out to dinner. We have a lot of pictures of her like that, dressed perfectly and posed for the camera.
