A Sad Farewell :(

I cannot begin to tell you how sad I am to write this post today!!  It is official, I am no longer a member of the Prima Design Team.  I will miss this team so much along with having to create with the most beautiful products out there.  I am certainly a Prima girl through and through and always have and always will love the brand.  I was so incredibly blessed and lucky to have worked with Prima Marketing for the past 2 years.  I cannot thank Sharon and the team enough for having chosen me!!!!!  There was nothing more exciting (and than creating for CHA!  I feel so honoured to have had my work displayed there :)  And to those girls who are leaving with me, I thankyou for sharing this journey with me, you are all crazy talented and I will also miss seeing all of your gorgeous creations in the forum and on the blog!!!!
So with that I can share with you my last Prima creation for My Prima Place.  You can find this amazing issue HERE.
"She's a Rose Between Her Thorns"

I immediately put my hand up to create a page featuring "roses" for this issue.  One of my favourite thing about Prima, and always has been, is the roses!!!  Any type, any colour, any shape, any size, I absolutely love them all...........



I stamped some butterflies and painted with Shimmerz............

I also have 2 Prima layouts that were shared on the Aussie blog over the weekend.  Both using the beautiful Rondelle Collection.


So they say all good things must come to an end!!  I am however excited to see who will be sharing their creations over on the Prima blog for the next 12 months.  Good luck to all of you who applied, it is an amazing team to be apart of :) 
I honestly don't know what to do with myself!!!!! 
Hugs to you all

    Projects that WOW!!!! Bloghop!!!

    Hello and welcome to the Projects that WOW!  Bloghop :)

    'Projects that WOW!’ is about making your projects stand out from the crowd. What makes you pause and look closer at a scrapbook page when you are flicking through your own albums, or looking at other people’s layouts in magazines? Which cards jump out at you from Pinterest or from envelopes when you open them? What details of paper-crafted home décor or jewellery make you stop and say ‘wow!’? It’s time to learn some of these techniques or styles and put them to use!

    'This blog hop includes a giveaway for three class places (worth £10 each). To enter you just need to comment anywhere on the ‘Projects that WOW!’ blog hop by 11.59pm BST Thursday 6th May. EACH COMMENT on EACH BLOG in the hop counts as an EXTRA ENTRY into the draw. The winners will be announced at Jennifer Grace Creates on Friday 7th May. If you’ve already purchased a class place and then you win, the class price will be refunded to you. So don’t wait to sign up! Go HERE to buy a place now!' 
     If you are new to my blog, here is just a little about myself.  I am an Australian mummy to 3 boys and wife to Tim.  I have been scrapbooking/papercrafting for the past 9 years.  I am addicted to the whole creative process, it's not just about capturing my families moments, it's very much my art!!  Currently I design for Aussie Scrap Source and Shimmerz.  I am also just about to finish up my 2 year term with Prima Marketing. 
    I am a guest contributor to this class and here is a sneaky peek of the project I made for it. 


    If you would like to know more about the class details visit Jennifer Grace Creates.

    Your next stop will be Riikka Kovasin !!!  Don't forget to pop back to Jennifer Grace Creates if you get lost along the way, there you will find the master blog hop list.

    Thanks for hopping along and I hope you can join in these classes.
