Hi there! Hope you are having a great week. Spring has sprung here in Arizona! The temperatures have consistently been in the low to mid 80's with clear blue skies ~ love it! I had some me time so I joined along with the March's Prima Product Picks challenge:
I made a layout featuring a photo of sweet Meredith that was taken at a horse competition.
I pulled out a couple sheets of pretty Prima paper that I've been embarrassingly hoarding for a few years! I knew I would use it one day ;) 
To create texture and more design to the already beautiful background, I used a Prima doily stencil along with various colored inks and randomly stamped images from Distressed Background Blocks:
Once the layers were stitched together and the stenciled detail was dry, I embellished with gorgeous Prima products including: Prima flowers (all but the 6 smaller blue flowers), the a light bulb, a fancy tassel and a resin key. One of the challenge rules is that you need to use at least 90% Prima products and I am quite sure I got that rule covered :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Be Sweet ;)
