Hello and happy weekend, everyone!  Late Friday night I finished up one of my most favorite layouts to date.  My mom and I just couldn't stop staring at it and I can't wait for my sister to see it in person.

The layout was created with gesso, Bazzill cardstock and tons of Prima Marketing flowers and embellishments.  A few strands of pearls and gems were added for a bit of sparkle and shine.

I know that most of the layouts I've created recently have been for various online challenges, but this one I created using almost entirely items from my Prima Sweet Cottage Special Delivery Box--no challenge whatsoever.  I've been itching to make a page with this gorgeous stuff!

The title is on the tag that pulls out from behind the photo.


I started off by painting a thin layer of gesso onto the background paper from Prima--it blends in pretty well with the paper but it creates a nice base for everything to sit on.  Then I used my Prima circle stitch stamps to create a diagonal line on the paper.

Prima flowers, stamps and gems cluster around the photo and a sweet paper banner and eggs nest add some interest.


Next I mounted my photo on some Bazzill cardstock.  On the backside of the info strip from the Prima paper is a cute little banner.  So I cut it out and placed it along the bottom of the matted photo.  I used 2 layers of foam mounts to pop the photo up off the page to make it level with the clothespin I clipped to the photo and more level with the flowers.

A Prima Marketing birds nest embellishment and velvet trinket bauble become the prime focus of the lower right hand corner of the scrapbook page.


I also added a chipboard sticker that looks like a vintage polaroid frame to the photo to highlight the ring placed inside the succulent.  I then began to layer on flowers, the bird's nest, velvet trinket and so on.  I love the flowers from Prima's floral trim; they remind me of my sister's wedding dress--especially when I added the pink gem to the centers.  The finishing touches were the pearls on the banner and the gems in the flower clusters.
