our family {DT work for scrapbook challenges}

hello lovely friends!

i made it to the third round "the FINAL 4" in the MARCH MADNESS at scrapbook challenges! YAY!

this week the challenge was to take your favourite number {68 in my case} and put the digits together until you reach a single number. this single digit is the total number of different/unique pattered papers that must be included on my layout.

here is what i came up with -


i used a total of 5 different papers to create my page: 
PRIMA - printery - pressman {the small black flowery strips}
PRIMA - printery - negative {the background}
PRIMA - printery - signature {the black dotted layer}
PRIMA - printery - page four {embellishments - the clock, the butterflies, etc.}
PRIMA - printery - love ledger {the foliage}

some close ups:
i used few of martha stewart's edge punches to create different shapes and edges for my design and PRIMA sculpture flowers

the FABULOUS chippie is from imaginarium design. i added a layer of gesso on the chipboard. when it was dry i coloured it with TIM HOLTZ' victorian velvet distress ink pad.

i choose the clock for my layout, because we made this picture a little bit before 12 o'clock on NEW YEAR's EVE - we celebrated NEW YEAR on a cruise ship last year and we wanted to memorize US before 12. that's why when i saw this clock on PRIMA's paper i had to cut it and use it. i added TIM HOLTZ' clear rock candy crackle paint to give extra dimension to my page:

this gorgeous flower is from PRIMA's cloissone collection bronze flowers:

the flowers are gathered from different PRIMA collections: PRIMROSA woodland {the large purple blossom}; COVENTRY ROSE pixie glen {the large roses}, mini roses and mulberry rose leaves:

the foliage die cut is made with MARIANNE design die:

i added glitter and rhinestones swirl to finish off my project.

i hope you liked today's post! if you did - head on to SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES and vote for me! I need your support!:-)

big THANK you!

hugs 'n smiles,
