A Prima-Licious Contest! @ Swirlydoos

Here is my entry for the Prima-Licious Contest over at Swirlydoo's. The more you enter the better your chances are of winning as it is chosen via Random Drawing.

Don't you just love these chubby little birds? Can you guess how I made them? Come on guess and no peeking! lol

As many of you know last week we took Gabby to Boston University for her first year in college. It was bittersweet and this photo was taken the last weekend in August in Ocean Grove at the Vintage Post Card Show.

I love the way it came out but not thrilled with my handwriting in the corner. I would love to come up with something else but for now it will stay.

This layout is for you Gabby may you spread your wings and fly high and if you should fall I know you will land on a star! You are my little angel and are loved more than you know! Love, Mommy

Okay, now that you probably peek... shame on you! Yes, these cute little birds were made with Prima's butterfly. I took the wings apart and then rearrange them and used glossy accents to glue the tail on and moved the crystal at the seam. Didn't they just come out so cute!

I have been waiting for the Prima Birds to come to Scrappers Cove but, they did get their big order in but not the birds or new butterflies. So, I couldn't wait any longer and made my own. lol
I can also see a little gold fish in the near future. Now, come on you saw it, too! Right?
Thanks for stopping bye and have a great week!
Hugz, Z


  1. oh my gosh you did a beautiful job on this layout. Very clever idea with the birds, wow!Yea, I know my blinkie has a red X showing, I tried to tell the girl who made it, and she can't seem fix it. Bummer, but thank you for telling me!!!I should take it down! ANyways, good luck in the contest, I hope you win!! xoxo

  3. Wow Z, I love the layout, love the colors and I just love that photo of your "little" girl!!! It so portrays how she's off to college and almost on her own.
    I could never be as creative as you...a butterfly is a butterfly! And not only was it a butterfly in my eyes...but you made TWO birds out of it! Now I can see how you did it...but I'd have never thought of that. You are too creative! Or too impatient? haha
    Good luck girl...I love it! Let us know if you win!!!! I'll be wanting YOUR autograph too!!!!
