                              So I'm back in the land of crafty mojo ......yer baby!! LOL!!
                        And thought I'd have some fun with this months Prima March Bap
                              I've not done a layout of this kind before,
                         so I had some fun Playing!!
                         O.M.G just lovin these papers,
                       and as we all know "Prima" papers and
                       embellishments are just so easy to put together,
                          wether they're new or old collections!!!

 So here's the inspiration board!!Prima March Bap
Prima March Bap
I had a play with some fran tage

Ive used it on my chippies, around my hand made photo frames.!!
Have to apologise my internet has frozen again, I have 2 entries so embarrassed xx

             So Now I have internet back up ....hope to stay!!,
          lets have a go at some description's and products I've used!!
       Some new Prima chippies along with Too Crafty,
      I have used some of the ever lovely prima resins
       the corners just below to the right corner!!
                 Some fav junk yard findings, tore and distressed edges,
                    punched and chomped bits out of this gorgeous paper range 
used some of the new "yummy" stickers,
added some doily's from my die stash
edged my raised papers with gesso,
and well I'm so happy how this turned out!!  

This is a close up of my handmade polaroid frames that I just had to attack with fantage!!
How cool is this stuff?? 

                                     Stamped around the edges of papers for an added effect and different dimension
I just love these photos of my little man, it just shows him to true form.....
"Happy" always larking about and being just him!!
He just makes you want to smile!!

Not much time for craftin'........

              Hi All,
              well lets see...yes I'm still alive,
              still working on the dealings of my arthritis in and out of specialists etc.,
              but I'm getting there,
              so crafting hasn't been a big part of life.....unfortunately....
              my fingers just seize at present so I'm not a happy camper!!
              My big boy is now in year one of school and well it was a bumpy ride for the start.
              WE had a lot of trouble last year with "Bullying" and it started the same....
.             it has subsided for now,
              and his school has been very supportive and is helping us manage the problem,
             On a lighter side he finally has his 2 front teeth starting to show!!! YAH!!!
             Oh it's a biggy for us as we have been waiting and waiting,
             He had a nasty accident at childcare (one of a few) and lost his first 4 front teeth
             due to an "accident"!!
             His bottom 2 came through no problem but his 2 top ones ...well let's just say they kept us      
             So will share some pics when they're on show properly!
             We've been to some really nice playgrounds down at grans place on our last visit
             so stay tuned for some layouts!!
             Fingers crossed that mine are on board with my creative flow hahaha!!
             I have had  a little play and will share some creations,
             I hope you have all been well and thank you to all your well wishes and thoughts,
             it's so nice to know I have such wonderful friends xoxoxo

                  So without further waffling ...... here's  have been playing with.

                                                                     "Prima Optimist Tags"

"Perfect Day"
I had a fun afternoon of fussy cutting something I love but don't
get to indulge too much these days!!
I have layered with dies and cheese cloth, paints, glimmers
gesso and flowers...Prima of course!!
Died the seem binding with pink and orange colours to blend..
I have used glimmer mists and Tim Holtz re inkers!! 

My last tag I have started off with painting with gesso
then used Prima's stencils, added some layers of dies and goodies
and copied my seem binding dying.
I added some more gesso for a soft effect on the flowers and bits here and there!!
