Prima Happy Dance!!!

I told you I would be back in a flash!

So for the month of July, I was invited to be Guest Designer for Prima Marketing....I was and still am pinching myself with such an awesome opportunity!

I wanted to share some of my work I did for them over the last month.....

Sleepy Little Man

I came across this newborn photo of my DS recently and just had to scrap it. The similarities between my two little ones a birth is striking! I wanted my photo to be the main focus of my layout, therefore I used a beautiful array of Prima product to wrap this photo of my son like a warm hug.

Beach Babe

Some beautiful close-ups.....

I simply could not wait to scrap pictures of our recent family vacation to the beach! It was my daughter (and son's) first time there and she looks simply adorable checking out the sand and surf. In creating this layout I wanted a soft look to mimic the sand, so I white washed many of my elements, and added what I thought to be nautical elements like shells, metal birds, and cheesecloth (fish netting).

Sleeping Beauty

And some closies.........

I just adore the Nature Garden Collection. This particular paper goes beautiful with my photo like a perfect match! The dark colored paper used in conjunction with the black and white Bretton Vine are a stunning contrast to the colorful mix of flowers I tucked within it. Tears and distressing of the outer edge of the paper further juxtaposed the bright florals used within my cluster.

Dream Beautiful

For this particular layout the beautiful Nature Garden paper line was a wonderful jumping off point, as I played off the florals and patchwork-like blocks in the paper. Using various art mediums I misted and inked the background to prepare it for some stamping for added interest. I also used Prima's sweet resin bridge to create a focal point to draw the eye towards the photo and then placed all my gorgeous flowers around it like a sunny garden.

I am so thankful to have had such a wonderful opportunity! Thanks Prima!!!
