Howdy **Swirlydoos**

Hi everyone and welcome to my Blog. Well this is the first time that I have tried the Prima BAP, but I love to work with sketches so I am going to start to play along. This was a very tough sketch for me as it involved circles!!! Eeeek!!!! Lol….but I love to try new things and this made me push myself and I really love the way it turned out. I used my Swirlydoos Cabaret kit and added a few more Prima goodies. The photos are of my  friends sons…they are just adorable in their cowboy duds J

First I distressed the gorgeous Moulin Rouge papers and did some stitching on them. Then it was on to create the circles. I used one of the new Prima masks and distress inks on the bottom of the layout to form one of the circles. There are lots of Prima flowers and leaves on this layout and one of the new Prima Say it with Crystals. I used a MS punch to make the border under the photos, and a regular punch on the mats.
I tucked a feather in with the large flower cluster and used a MS butterfly punch and Prima packaging for the butterfly. I added some crystals to the center of it. I distressed and inked the Moulin Rouge accessory mats and tucked them in the top and bottom corners. I also tucked in some Moulin Rouge Chipboard Journaling stickers with them.
I used Thickers letters for the title and the circle is punched with a MS corner punch then I added some liquid pearls to it.
This is just a side shot of the flower section so you can see the dimension of the layout.
Well that was fun fun fun and I can’t wait to play along again next month. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic week, be safe and stay warm. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J

Another great page ... don't know how you find time to crank these out! I feel lucky to do 2 a week! Just got my April SD kit today .. but I've already used the papers for DT work .. so not as much fun as when they are NEW to me. Hope you have a great weekend!
