Good day! The sun is finally shining & has put a stop to the grotty wet winter weather.  Please Mr. Sunshine last all the way through the weekend!!! I’m also finally getting over the flu & had the chance to create a layout & play along my favourite scrappy challenges.  First up is Scrap Around The World’s decadent, celebratory mood board by Helen Tilbury:


My main inspirations are the round sprinkles on the martini glass, the pearl studs on the high heels, & the saying: “Life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated!”

I’ve combined it with Prima’s May BAP, sketch designed by Jennifer Snyder:


Here’s my layout:



My daughter’s photo here was taken on an ordinary day, but we decided to play dress up anyway.  She’s got a shiny & ruffled pink dress on & what a great day it was! There’s so much fun to be had with young kids 🙂


The photo is framed with Prima’s burlap sheet.  I love the Stripes resist canvas, which I’ve misted with my Prima Color Bloom Sprays & Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, keeping to the purple & brown colors from the Butterfly tags & papers.


Isn’t the gold glittery heart on the stick just adorable?  Lots of pearls, bling & stars which is inspired by the mood board’s pearl studs, decadence & round sprinkles.  The Licorice Glass Beads ,cabachons, stencil, & stamps are from Finnabair, except for the heart stamp which is from the Butterfly collection as well, & the rectangle stitch stamp from Prima.

Thanks heaps to the team of artistic souls from Scrap Around the World & Prima who always inspire me.  And thanks for taking the time to drop in 🙂
