This is my take on Prima's May Build-A-Page sketch. It's a layout of my daughter with one of the school's horses, Sunshine, a pretty and good-natured chestnut gelding.

I used a mix of brand new and older Prima patterned papers and flowers on the layout, selecting a colour palette of pale pink, mint and green. The pale palette allowed the silhouette-cut photo to stand out amidst the cluster of flowers.

A close-up showing the cluster of flowers from Prima's new and older collections. The Petite Fleur Vine Cherry Blossom is from Prima's first vine collection a couple of seasons ago, as is the Wild Wood Collection. I love the rustic look of these flowers. Mixed in are flowers from this season's CHA: Calcutta, Athena flowers and De Vines.

The layout features patterned papers from the Flights of Fancy collection. To add lots of texture and contrast, I created a ruffled edging on the bracket shape, using border punches and patterned paper from a past collection,  Flirty Little Secrets, which is one of my favourite Prima collections to date.

My favourite things about this layout? The ruffled paper edging, the silhouette photo, the dimension and layering, and using up some of my older stash with my new.
