Hi there! Are you ready for the weekend? I'm so excited because I had a chance to create just for fun so I joined along with the Prima: April Build-A-Page sketch challenge.
I created a layout featuring a photo of Scott that I took while we were on vacation in Rome. I started by layering various papers from the fabulous Cartographer Collection which screams an old world style, coordinating perfectly with my photo and theme I was trying to capture. One of the rules is that you need to use at least 90% Prima products (which I did with no trouble).
I stamped a variety of clocks from Timeless as well as one of the fun images from Collage Backgrounds followed with randomly stenciled on circles using various mediums from my stash:
Once I had the background completed, I stitched on the photo after cutting it into thirds:
I had loads of fun embellishing with an assortment of awesome Prima metal trinkets and of course beautiful blooms:
For the sentiment, I stamped the word exploring using a fun set of Prima typewriter font stamps:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
