Dinner with Shamu - Prima Challenge

Found some paper today that I really liked by Best Creation. They even had matching dolphin glitter paper. I only used the blue swirl for this one. Prima flowers of course. The layout is from the Prima monthly challenge. Shamu brad is from the eyelet outlet. Font used was Opposites Attract. I need to add the journaling just not quite sure where to fit it in.

Taking a break until this weekend!

My air conditioner is dead. We are getting a new one installed Wed-Friday. It's supposed to be 100 degrees on Wednesday! Needless to say I won't be scrapping! I did find some of those Pioneer Scrapbook Snap Loads in the clearance section of Walmart for $2.00. I could only find two of them. I think they are usually around $5.00.

Wild Thing

I made this layout while Ashley was napping. My mom had a copy of one of the Close To My Heart Idea books, so I just kinda pulled out the paper that I had with me and went with it from there. I have so many pictures of us at the Wild Animal Park and zoo this year lol. Getting a lot of use out of that Zoo Stack Michaels had! I'm posting this so late at night because it took me about 2 hours just to figure out how to make the big picture a circle in Paint Shop. I just got the new PSP and I was lost lol. I have never done circle layouts. I don't own a circle cutter, so I used the Cricut to cut the 9 inch circle and the smaller circles. The picture I had to print at home, where I don't have the larger Cricut, so I had to do it myself. It's very easy to do cirles in PSP once you know where to look. The cricut cartridge used is George, for all the circles and the font. I figured since it was already in there why not just use the font. Also, unfortunately, the only other picture of Ashley at the zoo this trip was with me in it....looking horrible. LOL. oh well. I guess I have to be in those scrapbooks somewhere! The layout I scraplifted from actually turned all the photos sepia, which would have looked nice, except I really wanted Ashley's eyes to stand out. Since she's got those gorgeous blue eyes.

Under the Big Top

This layout was done using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for the cricut and the Mickey Mouse Font. I used paper from the DCWV "All Boys Stack". Which was cool because there isn't that much circus paper out there!!!! The kids had a blast at the circus. I just wish my camera took better pictures when things are dark and far away!

August Challenge - Prima Flowers

Okay this month I want to focus on Prima Flowers. I have a lot that I haven't used and we need to use them!

On the Prima Blog Spot they have a sketch called the August Build a Sketch. The challenge is to use that sketch and make a layout based upon that. Now here's the next part. They are having a contest....so part of my challenge is to submit our layouts for this sketch to their contest. One of their stipulations is that the layout has to be Prima based and not showcasing another products embellishments.

So that is my challenge! And for the rest of the month My challenge is to post layouts that use Prima Flowers!

here is the url to their sketch
