Hi everyone! I am back to share another quick layout with you all today that I have based on this month’s Prima Marketing BAP Challenge and I have also incorporated the Scrapbooking From Scratch May Quote Challenge  also. Click here to view the Prima May Challenge Blog Post and click here to visit the Scrapbooking From Scratch Gallery to see all this month’s challenges.

Here is the Prima BAP Sketch for the month of May and the Quote over at SFS is “Girlfriends are the sisters we pick out for ourselves”

So here is my take on the sketch and the quote. I actually mucked up the quote a little whoops but it still works. I have used the fabulous Prima Marketing Firefly Collection papers.

To add more texture to the background, I have added some Gesso using the Prima Donna Downey Random Dots Stencil and I smudged it a little so I decided to scrape the circles down the page to add a more smeared effect. There is never any mistakes in art LOL. When this was dry, I have dripped some Chalkboard Mists & Lindys Stamp Gang Mists down the page and then stamped some random areas with a Tim Holtz Texture Stamp using some Turquoise Perfect Pearls Powder.

I have used a bunch of Prima Shabby Resin, Flowers, Bling & Alpha for this layout as well as some Prima Donna Downey Canvas Script Flags that I have sprayed with some Chalkboard mists.

I have then added some Gesso to the edges of the Flags, and threaded through some Twine to add the banner over my layout.  I then grabbed some American Crafts Thickers to spell out Amigos and stuck them down to my Ranger Craft Sheet so I could easily sand them back a tad before adhering to my flags using some Ranger Glossy Accents.

I just love how this layout has turned out. Some random smearing of Gesso onto some of the Prima Alpha and a Pink Paislee Mistable Arrow added then my layout was complete. As you can see I have twisted and added to the original sketch a little (the banner was added) .

My adhesives by choice are always Helmar including Scrap Dots, 450 Glue & others.

Well that is it from me today, thanks so much for reading and until next time, happy scrapping!

I had fun creating my background using 7 Dots Studio Patterned Paper and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Sprays. I have also used strips of various papers from BoBunny, Heidi Swapp, Prima, as well as some old book paper.

Washi Tape was also added with some lace and an A2Z Scraplets scalloped piece which was actually a scalloped nested frame trimmed. I have simply coated this with some Perfect Pearls powder.

Above the strips of Washi Tape and Paper, I have added an A2Z Scraplets Heart & Swirl 7 Chipboard that has been simply coated with a layer of Cardboard Simply Jane Mist from Tattered Angels, and then some Stickles on the little hearts. I didn’t focus any details on the large heart because I knew I wanted to cover that with my photos.

Some old book paper was used to mount the photos and then some Helmar Scrap Dots helped me add them to my layout with a little height. Lots of fabulous flowers from Prima, Kaisercraft, Manor House Creations & Green Tara are nestled on top of a beautiful Flourish with a Bling Pearl Flourish.

Finally some alpha for the title and a little doodling/journalling then voila! my finished page. I have used Ranger Coffee Brown Archival Ink for all my distressing as well.

Well that is it from me today, Be sure to check back tomorrow for another layout share. Until next time, happy scrapping!
