Prima March Palette

Let Your Light Shine

Decided to have a go at the Prima Palette this month. I have never taken part in a Prima challenge before and thought this monochromatic green colour combo would be a great challenge to push me out of my comfort zone. I quite like the end result.

Used pretty much all Prima, some new and some quite old. The non Prima items were the Kaiser lamp post embellie, the Websters ribbon roses and the hand cut border on the bottom is from Basic Grey Curio.

Sometimes it looks like I am using the same pics but they are all slightly different as I always take so many photos when Brittany allows me to traipse her about for a photo shoot, as it's getting more difficult to get her to let me take photos.. I have to literally beg. Not sure what I will do when she stops altogether!!!

End of the Month is Almost Upon Us!!
