Crazy Love for Prima Marketing Inc!
Design Team Application!!

Hello everyone!   I am sure it will come as no surprise to any of you 
that I am applying for a position on the Prima Design Team this year
 - I use Prima products on almost everything I make, simply because
 I love them so much, they are such good quality products,
 they go so well with my style & they are timeless.  

I have FIVE CRATES of Prima flowers &embellishments in my 
studio & a good couple of inches of Prima papers still in my 
stash despite playing in the Prima contests almost every month
 {the Prima Product Pick & the Build-a-Page BAP Sketch}.

One of the reasons for my affinity to Prima {as well as because their 
products match my style of creating} is their ''international friendly"
policy.  As an papercrafts designer living at the bottom of Africa
 this means so much to me!   I love feeling like a part of the Prima
 community & following all their moves on Facebook & Instagram
as they travel the world to so many different scrapbooking events!

My love affair with Prima goes back A LONG TIME as I have been
scrapbooking for 11 years - but it turned into an OBSESSION about
4 years ago {this is my 4th application!}.  My way of thinking has always
 been ''you never know unless you try" so I have thrown my hat
 in again this year! Last year I was SO BLESSED to  get a 
which you can view HERE & HERE.

Since then I have tried to up my game by getting active on Instagram,
 opening a Twitter account, keeping my galleries, page tabs across 
the top of my blog & sidebars up to date as well as creating more 
cards, tags, off-the-page projects, altered items & canvases, 
plus , of course buying plenty of Prima stash & using it 
on almost everything I create, as well as sharing all
my creations & linking them up to Prima & actively
following & commenting on the Prima blog & FB.

I have gone through my blog since the call last year
 & selected some of my favourite Prima based layouts
 to share.  There were dozens to choose from as I use
Prima on practically EVERYTHING these days LOL!
