Playing at Pixie Dust Paperie! {"Eighteen" Layout - Prima}





Sadly these days I just don't really have the time to play in a lot of challenges, beyond my own DT
work, I just find there aren't enough hours in the day to get any more projects completed &
now that I scrapbook sooo much my family love to get a glimpse of me every now & again {wink!***}
- the studio I work in is really tiny so there's not room for anyone but me...
and I do spend "quite" a lot of time in there LOL...


BUT the other day I really felt like a little play
- just scrapping for scrapping's sake & nothing fancy -
just a little spritz of mist - a little bit of layering & some pretty paper & pictures -
 therapeutic scrapbooking :)
so I looked around for a quick & easy challenge & found this lovely sketch at Pixie Dust Paperie - which is a cute little kit club/online shoppe owned by my online bloggy bud Kirsty Vittetoe.
Prima meets Maya Road, Lily Bee & Teresa Collins...dreamy!!!


My daughter Chelsea is setting hearts on fire these days as you can imagine!!


How LUSH is that ornamental frame??  Oooooh I've been saving that for a good while now...

Hi Helen,

Sorry I haven't visited in awhile. Being so busy with the blog hop..Thanks for stopping by, btw!
Chelsea is so pretty, she's 18? Wow! I know what's its like, but I have a 19 y.o. boy...maybe boys are a little different than girls.
Your LO is gorgeous. Love the mask with the misting. I hope you're doing okay Helen...Hugs, Marivic

This is so pretty. I love the mix of pink, green and blue. They all blend so nicely.
And how great to scrap for the fun of it. I am going on a girls scrappy weekend and I cannot wait. I have so many photos and pages I want to do and then I thought, but how do I tie them into DT work and then I thought, just create a page without having any criteria to meet. How much fun would that be.....lol.
