Prima August BAP

Well it has been a LOOOOOONG time since I last played along over at the Prima blog. What inspired me to do so this time? The brand new Prima products that JUST arrived on some of my fave Australian scrapbooking stores. Some were impulse buys, because I will admit I got caught up in the new CHA release craze this time and when I saw them plastered all over my Facebook news feed I HAD to order them right there and right then! LOL! 

To be honest, the one collection I had to have this time (and trust me, I am not a HAVE TO HAVE kind of scrapper) was some of Finn's newest designs for Prima, mainly because I really liked the last collections and all the new stencils and stamps looked YUM! REALLY exciting for this mummy of a newborn who is pretty lonely some days LOL! 

Well anyway.. I only received my purchases a few days ago and the photo I have used on this layout is one I took on Saturday (17/8) when Sofia turned 3 months old. Isn't she cute? I'm allowed to say that I am the mum right? LOL??

So the collection I used here, is Vintage Vanity which comes in an A4 paper pad! YES A4! But that wasn't going to stop me from creating a 12x12 layout was it? 

This is also what sparked my enthusiasm.. just look at the Prima August sketch! It really does lend itself to joining 2 papers together doesn't it? 

2013 August BAP

I flipped the sketch around and here is my layout. I LOVED creating this.. I really LOVED having brand new products to create with. 

"3 months"

Because this is a layout about my sweet baby, I decided to pull the purple colour from her clothes and add some of that using Faber Castell Gelatos (Lavender) in some areas of the layout to make it softer. The yellow colour you can see is LuminArte Twinkling H2o in Daffodil which I had purchased at Finn's class in March and had just not had a chance to use it yet. After seeing them being used to create a great effect on many layouts online, I decided to give it a go. Its brilliant. I love it!
