We will be starting on the Prima Blog, simply follow along on each blog, leave a comment and/or follow each of the fabulous designers to be entered to win!"
This is a project I did, using the gorgeous French Riviera paper collection. This collection is simply beautiful and can be used for a variety of projects/subjects. I chose to create a Foto Folio following one of the directions from my Interactive Mini Scrapbooks book by Kathy Orta (now Kathy King) of Paper Phenomenon. This came together pretty quickly as I have made a couple before. I like the fact that it can hold a lot of photo's and there is plenty of room for journaling. Frank has outdone himself with the latest collections he designed for Prima.

This is the cover of my Fotofolio. After the base of the project was constructed in chipboard and covered in Kraft paper, all of the exposed Kraft was sprayed with  Empress Gold Color Bloom spray before adhering all of the French Riviera papers.


I created a closure using some of Franks Memory Hardware. It was perfect for this folio. 


Here is a view of the spine of the folio. I added a wide eyelet at the top and created a place to hang my memory hardware from as well as a ribbon that was sprayed with Glistening Waves Color bloom spray. I added a few beads from my personal collection. 


Here is a view from the top of the folio. It works like a trifold. 


This is a view of the folio opened up. There is a waterfall feature as well as pockets that contain tags and small cards that open up. There is plenty of room for photo's. 


This is a closeup of the right side of the inside. 


Here are a couple of pull out tags. 


This is the back of the folio when it is closed.


Just a closeup of part of the closure. 


I just love the Memory Hardware La Rochelle Antique Trinkets. So beautiful! 


The flowers are simply divine! I used the whole package on the cover!


Just an extreme closeup of the trinkets mixed with beads from my own stash. 



I used the little frame from the set of Baroque Frame Resins.
