all our yesterdays {PRIMA october BAP}

hello, scrappy friends! 

i was not planing to play along in any other challenge this month, but when i saw the ADORABLE sketch, created by the VERY talented anam stubbington:

i couldn't resist, i grabbed my PRIMA goodies and here is the result:

i took this picture of elise few weeks ago when we were walking in the park. the moment i saw it on my computer, i knew that it belongs with the "romantique" collection from PRIMA.

here is a complete list with all the AMAZING PRIMA products, i've used on my layout:
romantique collection - cling mounted rubber stamps
romantique collection - 12 x 12 double sided paper - orchard
romantique collection - 12 x 12 double sided paper - ha'penny
romantique collection - 12 x 12 double sided paper - hedgerow
pixie glen collection - cling mounted rubber stamps
e line - self adhesive pearls and crystals - bling - assortment 13
e line - self adhesive pearls and crystals - bling - assortment 1
stencils mask set - 8 x 8 - mix 4
romantique collection - textured stickers - alphabet
clear acrylic stamps - fence
alencon collection - tea stained seascape border spool
essentials 11 collection - flower embellishments - pixie glen
whisper collection - fabric flower embellishments - reflections
mulberry rose leaves - dark green
clear acrylic stamps and self adhesive jewels - green leaf
mini roses - yellow

other products, i used:
martha stewart crafts - edge punch - woodland branch
copic - ciao marker - R32 - peach
copic - ciao marker - G21 - lime green
ranger ink - stickles glitter glue - diamond
tim holtz distress ink pads - tattered rose
basicgrey - hopscotch collection - brads
marianne design - creatables branch {LR0151} and flower set {LR 0107}

for my background i used the hedgerow paper. to add more colour, i used a mask with tattered rose distress ink. i stamped the edge with the flower edge robber stamp from the pixie glen collection. the number " 8 " is there, because MY DARLING elise is 8 years old.

i stamped the fence on a separate piece of paper and cut is carefully with a crafting knife to create dimension. the flowers are from the essentials 11 collection and the whisper collection. i added some die cuts from marianne design to re-create branches.

for the title i used the romantique alphabet and a rubber cling stamp from the same collection. i will post a short tutorial later this week about how to fit your title on any journalling tag stamp.

i stamped and cut to create the embellishments for this project.

the new cling stamp from PRIMA are just PERFECT if you want to leave sweet little messages on your layouts.

i stitched the circle from the sketch template, added some butterflies and glitter.

to mask my cut out, i continued the tree with the cling stamps from the pixie glen collection. i coloured the blossoms and the leaves with copic ciao markers.

this was a long post, but i hope you enjoyed my story!

i'm off to UK now!:-)

hugs 'n smiles,

PS I just spotted my layout on PRIMA's blog! YAY!!
