Special to Me

I've rekindled an old love! Prima.... I am of the opinion that a layout must have more than paper. Buttons, ribbon, lace, metal... the list goes on... and flowers... Whenever I've needed a flower, I've needed Prima. And now there's so much more! Trinkets and resins! Papers and tiles! And bling! Oh My God... its beyond amazing! But I live halfway across the globe, in India, and its so difficult to get my hands on product, so I have to pace myself.
I made this for Prima BAP Nov. I hope you like it. It's my first Prima l/o.
I love this picture of my husband and son. Let's just say it's Special to me!
Here are some close-ups of the details.

Oops! Sorry I forgot to rotate them! But you get the idea, no?
Ok. Thanks for stopping by. I'd really appreciate any advice on how to improve my flower-work, or anything else you might think needs improvement! 


The wonderfully talented folk at OUAS have asked us to create a l/o describing what is so special about being a woman. I think having a baby is as special as it gets. I have a very special bond with my little son. I'm the centre of his expanding universe, and I love it! He is truly my heart walking about on two sturdy little legs, absorbing, learning and assimilating every waking minute of every day. His journey, while to some maybe mundane, to me is fascinating. And worth every change I've made to my life.
Here's how I interpreted the sketch.
 I used Graphic 45 papers. The Domestic Goddess line. I'm as far from a domestic goddess as one can get! Most days I'm a screaming mess, trying to cram too much into too few hours! But I'm nothing if not fanciful. And I fancy being a domestic goddess! And I absolutely adore G45.
These are a couple of close-ups of the details and my journalling.

That's it! Thanks for having a look!

MME blog challenge 29

Hey people! Thanks for stopping by. I made this l/o for the MME blog challenge 29. I have been in a creative slump for sometime now, so this was really a challenge for me. Lucky for me that the challenge was to follow the sketch using 'brown', and brown is one of my favorite colors.
This picture was taken after I'd made a chocolate cake. I thought it was pretty awesome that there was a little someone to lick the bowl and go, "Mmmmm"!
