Woo-hoo for Prima!

After scrolling through Pub Calls earlier in the month, I decided to submit for the Prima Design Team. The competition is I am sure extremely tough, but hey, I love flowers and I love Prima, so what have I got to lose, right? I completed these two projects and am so pleased with the results! I have had this junky chalkboard kicking around my scraproom for months. A little paint, pretty paper and some stunning flowers and ta-da! I love this and it looks great in our kitchen. This little wall hanging is a picture my neighbor took a couple years ago of Ellie. I love this photo and wanted to showcase it. I used the embossed Prima 12x12 chipboard for the base and painted it using a mix of pearlizing medium and some pale yellow paint. I love the look of the distress ink on the raised part of the chipboard. Hope to have inspired you all - cheers for the New Year!

I Think I'm In Love!

With my first ever Jenni Bowlin Kit! After running errands today, I arrived home to find this awaiting for me on my doorstep. Look at all these yummy papers, sweet little Prima flowers, awesome chipboard labels and that fabulous glitter butterfly! I'll be crafting later tonight with all these goodies - just in time for some last minute gift creations!

Winter Layouts

Last weekend's snowstorm kept me inside and working at my scrap table. I mananged to kick out 6 layouts; here are a couple of Ellie. I love scrapping during this season! So many fun pictures to take and turn into mini pieces of art. Now, if I could just finish all my Christmas shopping and crafty gifts that I have started! Hope you are all enjoying winter so far and the beauty of the season!
