"The color combination this month is absolutely gorgeous! I used this fabulous palette to set up my My Prima Planner - "In the Moment" planner. I added one of my favorite Julie Nutting dolls "Camille", donned in a beautiful dress inspired by the palette this month, to add a bit of whimsy and fun." ~ Robin Shakoor

"The Prima Product Pick is an amazing way to try out new and different color palettes. For my layout here, I applied gesso on my page to break the busy pattern. I then used a mix of Watercolor Confections Pastel Dreams and Pink Crocus Color Bloom spray to add color to the background. I finally finished off the page with some gorgeous Prima flowers, Art Stones, and Art Pebbles!" ~ Jaya Raghuvanshi

November's Build-A-Page sketch features just a single photo this time! It also has a diagonal stripe theme, and room for lots of little embellishments or a mixed-media background. The grouped embellishments near the photo could be interpreted in so many ways! You could try a flower grouping, chipboard ephemera, or you could use mixed-media to add a textural element!
As always, the sketch is open to your interpretation and creativity! We love to feature your work and would be so happy to feature your creations in the winner's post. You can submit your projects using the blue inlinkz button below!
"What a lovely sketch to work with this month! This layout came together very quickly for me, I think that is what makes a good sketch work so well!! I chose to create something beachy for this BAP using lots of gorgeous tones. The Fabric Pack is perfect for mixed-media touches and added shabbiness. I have blended Color Bloom sprays, Empress Gold and Vintage Coal, into my background, and on my shells, and finished off with some Opal Magic in Rose-Gold for added shine. I hope you all find time to have a play with this amazing sketch this month." ~ Stacey Young

"I had so much fun playing with the BAP layout this month - Riikka did an awesome job designing it! This photo was taken almost 30 years ago after my third birthday! Of course I had to use the pretty Rossibelle collection, as it was perfect for my vintage girly theme. How beautiful are those sugary flowers and glittery druzy stones...dreamy." ~ Aideen Fallon

"I loved the diagonal design in the sketch. Instead of doing it just like the sketch, I used the diagonal as a jumping off spot. I also mimicked some of the placement in the sketch, but added my own spin. The Sweet Peppermint collection is adorable, so I decide to go with the sweet and cute look on my layout. The rub-ons and foils are such a pretty compliment to the metallic and glittery accents in the Sweet Peppermint collection." ~ Robbie Herring
