Basic Grey "Mellow" layouts

Is it just me...or are some of you collectors of scrapbook goodies? I have had some of my kits that are still not even opened since 2007. Last week I decided to take them out one-by-one and finish the whole kit. This was the Personal Scrapper September 2007 kit. It featured Basic Grey Mellow. I am posting all the layouts I did with it and you can get an indication how many layouts you can do with a kit.

This first layout is with a photo of the house that my son Kobus Jr. built in Seaview last year. He wrote the master builders exam in order to be registered as a builder. We are so proud of his first attempt at building and what he achieved. They only lived in the home for six months and then sold it.
It is always so cute when the little ones walk around in their daddy's shoes. Here is Leane wearing her daddy's shoes.
Photos taken in my garden. When we just moved in we went crazy...planting so many trees and shrubs to get some privacy. These photos were taken before we pruned it back a lot. The grass did not want to grow because it never had sunlight.
This layout was done a few months ago. The grand bambinos at the touch farm.
These photos were taken at the look out point of Sir Lowry's pass. I lifted a layout done by the talented Iris Babao Uy. This lady does the most amazing cut work and is a wonderful inspiration to try something new.

On the Personal Scrapper forum Amy recently had a poll where you had to say how you felt about scrapping photos of loved ones that have since passed on. I find it wonderful, it just brings back so many memories. This very old photo of two of my children with Kobus' parents were taken in 1992. They have both since passed away...but we are left with so many amazing memories of them.
Some more old photos. These were taken in 1998 and Alex have since became a teenager and Bianca will soon turn 20. These photos reminded me of how crazy she was about this little cousin of her. I used one of the May pagemaps for the layout.
Alex was a frequent visitor to our home and always wanted to come with "Aunty 'Et". Here we took him to a touch farm...but as you can see he was soon fast asleep.
That is all for now folks. Will be back soon with some photos of this past weekend. Hope you have a wonderful start to a new week.


  1. Another lovely range of layouts. I find these kits great because they really seem to strestcvh when you add a bit of this & that from your own stash like you & I always do.

  2. I love the '92 memories LO you did. All of them are great. I like how you add something from your stash to work with the kit on most of them.
    I actually almost used up this kit when I received it and liked it so much I purchased a second one. I have barely touched it though. I think you've inspired me to want to work with it now!

  3. My goodness you really know how to make a kit stretch...x8 including doubles Wow!. Your pages are always so real life...I love how they tell a story & allow us a glimpse into your happy life.
