Prima Engraver Papers...

 
Hi All, I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter Bank Holiday!
this long weekend, I have had a chance to play with my stash, and I have been enjoying pulling out some of my old papers. One of my all time favourite lines is Prima Marketing Engraver Collection.
Below you will see why. This is one of very few paper collections I have found that can suit any genre, theme or colour scheme you want it to become. The colours are all neutral, and so it leaves the option to add any colours you wish to personalise it or coordinate it with other products you have.
 
On my first project here, an Art Journal Page, I have coloured my background (Engraver - Roulette) with ink sprays to make it pink and red.
 
 
Then, using the same papers, I have incorporated blue and green flowers instead to give this card a much softer, more feminine feel.
 
 
So despite these products not being the 'latest' collection, I know I can use these again and again for a long time to come. Why not have a browse online for older favourites of yours at www.papermaze.co.uk , or try creating with neutral palette and personalising it with a splash of your own choice of colour?

Happy Easter everyone - I hope you haven't eaten too many chocolate eggs!!  And speaking of eggs, it's time for the final clue in our hunt :)  Hopefully after finding today's hidden egg, you will have 7 answers, which you then need to email me - vanessa@papermaze.co.uk.  All I need is the product name and manufacturer of each egg. Closing date for entries is midday Wednesday 23rd April. A winner plus runners up will be drawn at random then :)

So, onto the final clue!  To finish with, a picture for you:





Thanks to everyone who has taken part in the hunt this year, I really hope you have enjoyed it!

Nearly there!

I'm just back from cropping and although I didn't get much done, I did have a lovely day - thanks to all the ladies for their great company :)  And before I get started on tea, I thought I had better post today's clue.  Are you ready??!! 

I need the title of the song that these lyrics come from:

Because when the sun shines, we'll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end

Don't forget to come back to tomorrow for the final clue!  Happy hunting!
