Prima Product Pick and BAP for November

Wow what a gorgeous rich Prima  product pick - love it!

I have finally managed to play with texture paste and I think you will see more layouts with it - here is my layout for the product pick this month. I have used Prima's Brick Wall mask and coloured the paste with Rusty Hinge distress stain.

I have also done the Prima build a page sketch.


Here is my layout using the sweet Pixie Glen papers.

Prima Roadshow

The Prima Roadshow hosted by Scottie Crafts happened on Thursday the 3rd of November at in Takapuna. It was a great place for the roadshow to be held at as it was nice and light with heaps of space for us to create in. It was awesome finally meeting the ladies from Prima- Cari Fennel and Sharon Laakkonen.

Cari Fennell was our first amazing tutor and we had an gorgeous pack of Prima goodness to create an album with the Alla Prima range.

A work in progress:

The team with Cari after the class:

While the classes were on and in between the classes there was an amazing high tea buffet table to enjoy. Carrot Cake muffins, savouries, slices, shortbread, fruit and more with tea, coffee and juice as well -YUM!
 There was also inspiration on the walls and display table for people to look at too mainly my Prima stuff as everyone knows I am a PRIMA ADDICT. 

In the evening another amazing tutor  Sharon Laakkonen helped us create another gorgeous album - this time with the Pixie Glen Range and a very cute heart shaped canvas album.

Me, Wendy, Sharon with our finished albums and Adrienne :

  It was an awesome day  - thank you Cari and Sharon for your gorgeous classes they were amazing and so were you!
A day to be remembered for sure!

My Minds Eye Challenge No 29 - layout

There is only a few hours left to do this challenge so I decided I would have a go as need a bit of a mojo boost after lots of scrapping done in the last few weeks that ground to a halt last week.  I have a good book I am reading so a bit distracted from scrapping and I have DT stuff to do!

Here is the sketch on the My Minds Eye Blog and you have to use brown on your layout (which I did't read but luckily I used brown).


Here is my layout - I have used the Lost and Found Two Sunshine collection (Papers, brads and packaging!).
