Prima BAP April - Cherished

Good day Bloggers!

Are you also taking advantage of the public holidays and also enjoying a 5 day weekend? Glorious glorious is what i say! Friday and Tuesday are public holidays here in South Africa, and many people (including me) are taking today off too - making the weekend Friday to Tuesday. (If only every week was like this :) )

So with all this free time did you manage to get any scrapbooking done? I am pleased to say that I did and here is my take on the Prima Build-a-page challenge for April.

Here is the Prima sketch:

A close up of the flower cluster. I used different flower ranges and some chipboard pieces to create the effect:

Here is a close up of the distressed 6"x6" papers used, as well as the paint effects.  I used 4 different 6x6 papers for the background, and added a stip which I used my American Craft border punch on as well as some chipboard pieces and a doillie:

I used paint on a Prima mask which gave a nice texture to the page.

The bottom of the photo was framed with a Say it in Crystal ribbon and bling border, which I cut to fit the A5 photo I used. The title - cherished, is from the chipboard pack I used.

The sketch was great and although i didn't add all the journalling stips I'm pretty pleased that I followed it quite nicely.

Since it was a Prima challenge I used only Prima products, not that that is ever a problem! They are:
