Playing with Prima

I am so in love with the new Firefly collection from Prima.  When I reordered some for the store I just had to keep some for me, lol.

So I created 2 layouts so far.  The first is called "On the Bridge" and it is of my DD and my DGS.  We recently went to the Botanical Gardens in San Antonio and I took a TON of photos.  The colors are just perfect for these papers.

For this layout, I had found a wooden frame at Michael's and inked it up for that natural wood look.  As you can see, this really is a simple layout.  Frame, a couple of vines, some interspersed flowers and some lovely butterflies from the new Pink Paislee Artisan collection.  I then just used a punch in a few areas around the edges and that's it.

This next layout is of me.  I've been trying to do one layout per year of myself so I can remember what I looked like at that time.  Since I am now 47 years old (gasp - how in the heck did that happen?!!!) I thought this photo was a good one to use.  It's kinda far off enough not to really show my age, lol.

So on this one, I used my cherry blossoms stencil and some stencil paste.  I love the effect it gave and have to say it is much prettier in real life.

After I let the paste dry, I just added my photo, a couple of chipboard pieces and tons of flowers.  Can you tell I REALLY LOVE these papers?
