journey 33

Hi there! I hope you are staying warm where ever you are. Fall has definitely arrived here in the desert. The temperatures have fallen in the low 60's and doesn't get much higher than the mid 80's for now but at least we still have sunny blue skies daily :) I prefer low 80's myself ~ how about you? Today I joined along with a few of my favorite challenges and made both a layout and a card. Both projects reference the November's Prima Product Picks for color inspiration:
First up is my take on the November's Prima Build A Page sketch. Here's the fun sketch:
Here's my interpretation:
 I had so much fun creating with the beautiful color palette:
I scrapped a photo of the gorgeous Trevi Fountain that was taken when we were vacationing in Rome:
I combined pretty papers from the Prima Epiphany collection with a Prima stencil along with a Prima stencil to create lots of texture on the background:

I used beautiful Prima art ingredients to create lots of shimmer and shine:


 and embellished with a variety of Prima metal trinkets, paper flowers, canvas flowers and a trio of beautiful chipboard butterflies all the way from the UK courtesy of my dear blogging friend Ros:
If scrapping is not your thing here is a greeting card featuring a variety of similar products used to create the layout:
 Can't go wrong with texture, shimmer and shine in my book!
For card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current cardabilities sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by! I have something exciting to share with you tomorrow, so I hope to see you then!
Be Sweet ;)

Gorgeous, Mona! Love your layout and your card - the colors are simply stunning and very appropriate for fall! Enjoy your fall! It's 56 now and I'm pretty sure that will be the high for the day. Not complaining though since I am toasty warm inside with my fuzzy slippers and am making homemade chicken soup. :)
