Yet another stunning kit this month!! I love the new Prima collection, Tales of us. Such pretty colors! This is seriously a kit you don't want to miss out on! And the Add-ons.....holy smokes! Perfectly coordinated!
When I see these gorgeous papers they say to me DISTRESS!!  I love to layer papers and do heavy distressing.  I will have a tutorial on April 9th showing how to pick and layer several papers for one layout. Stay tuned!

 This is the Magnetic Mini Album for the Project Add-on. You can find a tutorial on Snapguide on how I created the cover.
 These are the inside pages. I had to carefully remove some of the insert to all my chunky embellishments can fit. This way it can close properly.

 This cute fan came in the Main Kit. I knew exactly what I was going to do! I wanted to give a shabby Victorian look with the rich colors mixed with pinks. I first painted with thick gesso, the used paints from the Medium Add-ons. From there just did lot of embellishing with flowers from the Flower Add- on.

 Here is just a close up.

I made this page somewhat of a shadow box. I cut out the center of the framed paper and layered foam dots on the back. I then adhered it to another piece of paper. It gave about a .25 inch of depth to add thick embellishments in and out of the frame for lots of texture and dimension. As always you can find the butterlies and stick pins at my Etsy store, LittleScrapShop.

 This is my take on the monthly sketch. I just flipped it! Everyone can play in the challenge, so please come and join us!

Here is the sketch! A fantastic design by Begga!

Total gorgeousness here, Ang. I always try to pick my favorite on each page while hopping, but you've made it so hard this month...
The fan is WOW and so is the mini, but your layouts are Shabbiness at it's best!!!!
