Live Out Loud...


Happy Tuesday y'all! I'm back to share with you a project for Your Memories Here that I'm hoping will rock your world...pun intended! :0) As y'all know I love me some Prima Marketing products, and this week I wanted to show you some versatility using Prima on this rockin' guy LO featuring our son. Usually when I use Prima, and I know most others do this too, we make everything soft, pretty, & detailed because their products are just so gorgeous. However, some of their prettiest papers have a grungier flip side that are just perfect to showcase the men in our life! And like always, you can find the most fabulous Prima products including papers, flowers, ribbons, stamps, crystals & more RIGHT HERE in the YMH Store.


One of my favorite things about this LO are the letters; I just love how they turned out when I spritzed them with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Charcoal. They almost look like metal & really have some depth to them too. I also love that I was able to recycle several items such as the corrugated cardboard stars, which used to be a coffee wrapper, and the fabric journaling spot, which was a Van's shoe tag in a previous life. I always save all the tags off our son's shoes/clothes because most of them are pretty cool & just perfect for LO's like this. It also makes the LO a little more personal. I also spritzed a little charcoal glimmer mist on the cardboard stars to help them stand out. The arrow & the cardboard stars I cut by hand using a template, then dabbed some Tim Holtz Distress Ink on them.

THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!! I LOVE your chipboard lettering and the VANS tag!!! AWESOME~~~

We have a big set of drums like this for my little man that we scored pretty cheap. It is in storage because he has a little room and it would take up most of it :) He has a tiny set (first act) right now... but my hubby wants to put the big one in now. I am like "ok, remember, you go to work. I homeschool, I clean the rooms. he is still big into his toys... soooooo you tell me :D hehehe!

Beautiful (I mean ROCKIN') project girl!
