Live With Prima Project Two...

I got my new Studio Calico "Joyland" kit this week and I am LOVING it! Check it out (click on photo to see it larger)...

I just love how this kit coordinates without being the least bit "matchy." In fact, I was so inspired by the new kit, I dug right into it immediately and made my second layout from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's "Live With Prima" class. Here's how it turned out...

That's Michael and his Dad - can you see the family resemblance? Julie always has such unique ideas, like the garland on the bottom half of this layout! I had so much fun making my garland! The flowers were a natural color, and I dyed them with spray ink. Julie actually used a sewing machine to make her garland, but I used the alternate method she offered, of just gluing my circles and flowers onto bakers twine. Now I can't wait to dig into the third layout from the class! Thanks for the inspiration Julie!

I hope your weekend is going well! See you soon!

Wow! Looks like you got all the add-ons! I'm going to work with Joyland today (just the basic kit...my SC stash is piling up! LOL) Love the garland idea, and attaching them to baker's twine. I never think to haul out my sewing machine until everything is glued down! Michael's resemblance to his dad is incredible; love that you did a LO about the two of them <3
