Featured at Prima! {June Build-a-Page} Wooooooot!!

Of all the embellishments that have come & gone in the world
of scrapbooking FLOWERS are probably the one that has
caught my heart the most.  I'm not an awfully feminine person
- I am very tough.  I had a harsh upbringing & I was on
my own from aged 17, fending for myself, and have been ever
since.  I've lived in a dictatorship in Zimbabwe & then moved to 
the Wild West {as I call South Africa} where you have to look
 over your shoulder wherever you go and pay attention 24/7.

But I digress! I love my studio, I feel safe in here, 
surrounded by beautiful things.  Sure I love cardstock, yup, 
me & plain old cardstock have been in love for YEARS.  I
 simply ADORE journaling pens, and my printer probably has 
over half my heart!

But flowers, they just feel like such a forbidden treasure.
They are totally unnecessary, simply there to beautify!
And that is why I love them & have dozens of them.
  They are my indulgence.  I have a hard time saying no to them!

I've been stalking the Prima blog, wondering if the results
 were ever going to go up as CHA swallowed the whole of June,
 then the July BAP features were announced and I gave up...

So it was honestly a surprise of the best kind to see my 
layout up on the Prima blog on Saturday HERE!

They did feature 27 layouts but I like to think they get
A LOT of entries :)  I was in good company there too along
with my friends Agnieszka, Eila, Erin, Joyce, Kelly, Keren & Marilia!

Well done girls - we did it !!  Wooot!!!

Congrats Helen, beautiful layout and the background of you page looks stunning, love how you used the resin embellishments and whilst I'm not a big fan of the over kill of flowers, I think you have the right amount for this layout.

Cannot live without my Prima blooms! each season I buy more of them, they are my very own special treat too.
Yeah, didn't we have to wait for such a long time before they released the features, took like forever. Was soooo chuffed seeing your name there along with your beautiful soft and girly page!! I've been cheering all my buddies and still smile seeing us there together. Makes my heart sing!! The August BAP is a tricky one, just put the finishing touches to mine. Done any yet? Mwah!
