It's Time To Be (PRIMA) Pretty !!!

Hello dear crafters !!!

How's everyone doing today? So excited for the coming spring break ? We're sure it will be a brief, yet welcome respite from the demands of everyday routine, especially for those of you who would like to spend more time with your kids! Wherever and however you decide to spend the short holiday, just please make sure that you stay safe, enjoy every bit of  time spent with your loved ones, and of course, allocate some time for yourself by doing a li'l bit of crafty therapy !☺

The fabulous ladies from our Design Dream Team have made things a lot easier for you by giving you  several design inspirations for the Prima CHA 2011 Winter releases - the entire collection of which are still readily available here at Paper Lane. We are so proud to present to you their work, because aside from the fact that these are their first official Paper Lane project , it is so strikingly evident that although there were hardly any profusion of flowers in sight (as we somehow have come to expect from Prima layouts) , their pages still turned out to be as breathtakingly beautiful as we were confident they would  be- so well done ladies! Your projects are all certified Prima-pretty so you are now officially Paper Lane's Prima Donnas !☺
