*G* Thirsty Thursday

Hopefully you weren't too thirsty yesterday as I completely forgot to schedule the next Thirty Thursday challenge! Apologies for that - hopefully this post is better late than never. Week 7 already and this week we are taking inspiration from the letter G prompts below to make a layout, card or another crafty project. So here we go...

G is for 7GYPSIES - The latest range GLOBAL (also beginning with a G!) from 7Gypsies was loaded to our site earlier this week if you haven't seen it yet. For this challenge we ask that you use any papers or products from any one of their extensive ranges.

G is also for GRAPHIC 45 - We have over 150 different Graphic 45 items available, which are your favourites? Time to dig them out for this weeks challenge.

G is for GEMS - How about showing us how you put your final touches to your cards and layouts with gems? Do you mostly buy and covert (I'm guilty!) or use these pretty embellishments? Share your gem adorned projects with us this week.

G is for GAMES - Traditional board games, outdoor pursuits or maybe the latest technology inspired games, it's time to scrapbook pages about them and preserve the memories.

G is for GREY - One of my staple go to colours or cardstock and certainly ink pads which pair lovely with lemon or bolder yellows, equally as well with pinks and blues. Use the colour grey as a focal point or background colour to your next crafting project.

As always we have some design team examples to share with you.
Jane created this beautiful mirror last month as part of the DT Gallery using Graphic 45 papers.

Ann's shares a page from a double layout class taught earlier this year with Echo Park Valentine range featuring plenty of grey in cardstock, patterned papers and the b&w photos.

Thanks for joining us for another round of weekly challenges. Be sure to share your creations using the link tool to be in with a chance to win a little something from us.
