Prima BAP - MAY

I have been in a rut lately, in my scrapping. I had lots of ideas swirling in my head. But I feel so tired.... sort of zap of my energy to 'create' prob from caring for my sick kids for the past 3 weeks. Now Ellise is better, Charis is down. Sigh!!! The bad bug just keeps going around. So, today, to break out of my rut.... I took Ellise downstairs my flat, dress her up in her fairy/ballerina dress...... and click away. Yes... first of all, new photos, new composition stirs me alot. I dont scrap the same old same old photos... Then these beautiful shots of her came out.... gosh... my energy came back!!! And the good thing is she is back to her normal perky self... so today I get LOTS of good shots. She is one cooperative girl! woohoo!!! Here's what i did with the Prima BAP sketch. I rotate it a bit..... move the scallop part to the top.... added my own touches. I love the colors most of all. This just perks me up!!!! Pinks & blues... The whole color palette is just so light and airy! JOY The 'JOY" fabric words packaging is perfect for this, I love that i can journal on this green card........ I love hidden journaling How do I hold the journal card? I sew the papers on the background piece so it forms a pocket. see the sewing.... Now my fave part is hiding flower behind papers. Part of it shows forth, nice peeka-boo I wanted to squeeze another cute pic of her.. I cut up the oval made a hole and put the pic from the back. I added Liquid Pearl around it. Oh... this bird stamp from Prima is sooo vintage. I used this for my class recently and everyone loves it. We joked that the size is just right..... hahaha... not too fat... you know some bird stamps are just too fat.. it blocks other stuff ... too big... *wink*.. anyway, that's the scrap talk we do in my class. *LOL* Yes.. I know... you gals want to buy it. I have informed Elvira and Sandra((owners of my LSS) to bring these stamps in again. It was sold out in the store. That's really fast!
Another fave, the dress form. This is my 2nd piece.
Do you know where I can buy these again?
It is sold out everywhere. I REALLY need to buy MORE.
I love that pearl stub ... looks like a necklace, right?
I see a new face in my 'followers' list. thanks!

Every 20 followers, I will do a giveaway.
thanks for staying with me in this long post.
Thanks for dropping by. Have a great week!
