Hello poor little neglected blog! I FINALLY have made something to blog - jeez Mr Mojo has been very unkind to me recently!! I joined a facebook page called Scrap It With Attitude and we had a challenge put out to us to scrap a page or off the page item using your favourite brand - with at least 50% of the creation to be made using that brand, and post it on the challenge page with some general info about the brand. This was just what I needed to finally kick start the old mojo - something with a few rules to guide, but enough leeway for creativity.....and I chose PRIMA MARKETING inc to be the brand (yeah baby!!!)

It's easier to say what isn't Prima than what is!!! The bazzill backing cardstock, the Rusty Pickle title, the Carolee's creations Adorn It lettering for the journalling and that's it! The rest is Prima - the paper is Prima Fairy Flora Garden Party...Prima flowers, a prima say it with pearls swirl, prima lace,  a prima journalling card...

To get this effect I first cut out a large mat for the photo, then trimmed around the flowers and stems around the top 2/3rds of the mat. I used my fingers to curl the stems and flowers up from the page and added the Prima rosebuds over the top of the stems.
a close up of the lovely prima flowers....

Gosh I love Prima...and what a fun challenge!!! If you would like to join this group on Facebook, send me a friend request HERE and I will send you an invite...Hugs for now!!!
