International Scrapbooking Day - and Prima blog Hop!

Hi again friends!
I'm so very happy to see you here on my blog! As my other great Prima friends I'm taking part in Prima Blog Hop, which is part of celebrating of hm... International Scrapbooking Day! What can be better than that?
Are you ready for blog jumping? So, here we go!

First, I've got super exciting news for you:
Today we've got a Live with Prima Marathon!
Classes start at 9 am ET and run all day long! You will have the possibility to have a peek into Prima office and see a bunch of  talented Prima teachers sharing their projects with you! I'm sure it will be a great time for all of us - see you there!


Prima has a special place in my heart. These people gave me wings - 2 years ago believed in me and my a bit crazy, a bit edgy projects... then, which was a great surprise for me - opened the door to CHA Show and now - I've got my own release with them, my next dream is coming true! I'm proud and happy to be the part of this team, and I hope there is a lot of good things coming in the future too :)

I've got a Prima project for you too - all based on my Sunrise-Sunset collection and my Mechanicals - metal embellishments. I hope you will like it - I do :)
