Prima 'Divine'

Hello there beautiful people! I'm back... finally!  Still playing 'catch up', but going better every day. :)  Hope you are all doing well and are having a great week.   I'm here to share some layouts I did with the absolutely DIVINE Prima 'Divine' collection.  The colours in this range are to die for.
My first layout is based on the Sketch #86 from Inspired Blueprints. Here is the sketch.
And my take on it.  The photo is of my DD and two friends on their way to a Rhianna concert a few years ago.
The flowers in the 'Divine' collection are super gorgeous. :)  The mini birdie house is from Dusty Attic.  I've just wiped a few layers of Gesso over it.
A close up of the flower cluster.  I've punched the leaves from cardstock, using the Martha Stewart 'Rose leaf' punch.
A few layers peeping out from under the photo. Those beautiful paper doilies are from Bo Bunny and come in 3 sizes.

For my second layout I've used a photo of my mum and dad on their wedding day (54 years ago).  Lots of cutting and inking of edges in this one.
 The mini flower vine and all the flowers are from the 'Divine' collection.
 I just love these large fabric alpabet stickers from Prima.
That's all for today.  I am going to make a big effort to visit all my favourite blogs later today.  I might not get to all of them, but then there is always tomorrow.
Also, watch this space as my next blog post might be my BIG giveaway! :)
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week!
Until next time.

Lovely lovelies, Marelize - especially love that flower cluster under the 'girls' photo on the top LO...& I'm glad you survived your visitors...nice to have them; but always nice to get back to 'normal' routines, I find. Our family [mum,dad& 3 kids under 12] arrive Easter Monday......think of me!!!!!!

Both pages are gorgeous, Marelize! I especially love the second one...the patchwork effect kind of looks like a calendar....and I'm wondering if the paper was like that or did you cut out all those squares?!
