Prima Marketing: "Wonderful Bond" {Step-by-Step Tutorial}

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week so far :). I spent the day picking wild blueberries and got myself a whole gallon so I'm excited to make some more blueberry pies and maybe even do some jam! But I'm exhausted- so finally sitting down to get this post typed up and shared with you all :).

I have a step-by-step tutorial of a layout that I created for Prima. It has been broken down into 7 easy steps, and I hope you enjoy!

Here is what we will be creating today:

"Wonderful Bond"
This photo of Wyatt and Aspen just melts my heart :). Precious moments!

Ahh, bless you - exhausted & still posted a tutorial. It's eye opening to see how you go about your beautiful pieces. I don't do layouts but thinking these techniques could be put on a canvas (like I'll ever actually do it? Lol).
Rest well, take care. Caroline :)))

Gorgeous, yummy textures on your layers Erin. I envy you and your hoard of blueberries. I just saw a food show the other evening that features blueberry marinade with ribs. Sounds interesting, doesn't it? XOXOXO

I really, really like this step by step...because it gives guidance, but also encourages the individual THANK how you've used the mask AFTER the layers, too:):) And good on you with your blueberries....YUMMY!!!!!!!

This looks amazing and to watch it come together is fabulous.. I know you say there is no rhythm or reason, but it all does look very much like it is all meant to be like that and give such a wonderfully created layout!! Love all the flowers too..
