Pumpkin Time with Graphic 45!

I was inspired by the gorgeous colors of the pumpkins from the “Time to Flourish” October pages and thought I would create a layout where those images could really shine.    I decided to mirror my focal design in the top corner using papers from the 8x8 “Time to Flourish” October pages. This is such a fun look and adds interest to the page.  I used a chalk ink to stamp drips on the page.  Using the chalk ink allowed me to smear the ends of the drips easily.

Think Pink with Prima


"Breast Cancer. It's a horrible disease that affects so many around us: friends, moms, sisters, aunts, neighbors, co-workers. And, although the majority affected are women, this is a disease that also attacks men. Let's do what we can this month to bring awareness to the devastation breast cancer causes. Prevention is the key!"

I am from a family of breast cancer survivors and I designed this card to show my love and support for those who are enduring this struggle.

The beautiful color combination I selected from a color board makes this my favorite Prima project.  When I saw this color combination, I knew exactly which beautiful Prima embellishments and papers I would use to create my canvas.
