pretty little studio / the twinery blog hop

as i end my last term with pretty little studio, i am savoring how fortunate it has been to work with an incredibly creative owner AND some of the best designers!! i get to end my term with a lil blog hop with "the twinery".

you are participating on the THIRD day of the blog hop! but do NOT miss any of the inspiration shared the previous two days!!

Day 1:

Day 2:

*Day 3:
Penny Smith (you are here!!)
*here next: Melyssa Connolly

on to my layout…

i wanted to use the twine as a nod to the picture and a stand-out accent/embellishment. 

i am old school (probably cuz i am old). i sewed in the twine on my layout and just tied it off in the back… 
here it is a lil closer from the front… i DID use a ruler and made each section 2 inched long and the same distance apart, but varied the top point… 
and a lil closer look at the rest…

wanna win some GREAT prizes? like $65 worth of twine 

or a $50 gift certificate to pretty little studio?? 

go comment on each designers blog quick, and for additional entries, go like both companies on Facebook, and follow each companies blog! 
they are privately owned companies! you WANT to support them!! 

thank you for visiting-i hope you were inspired with "pretty little studio" products and "the twinery" bakers twine combined!! i know i had a great time! if this is to be my last scrapbooking design work, then i couldn't ask for a better event!! 

now hop along!!! (off to Melyssa Connolly's blog!!)

Pretty Little Studio - BLOG HOP!!!

…you should be here from the blog of Sara Zenger… 

if not and you want to start at the BEGINNING of the blog hop, start here at the pretty little studio blog!

thrilled to be designing with these fine creative ladies for this hop!!

thank you for stopping by! 
REMEMBER!! comment on EACH designers blog AND on the pretty little studio blog for a chance to win a prize from EACH! 

my giveaway prize?? i thought you all needed a chance at this flair!

too cute huh? the winner will be drawn on friday december 6th! 

(there will also be A $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE given to one lucky blog hopper too!!)

so on to my layout! 
we all wanted to give you some inspiration using the new "woodland christmas" line, which coordinates with "nature walk". 

i got the sewing machine out for this one. i still love to sew on my pages! 

i sometimes forget that even though us designer types like to put things like deer on a layout even if it has nothing to do with the "theme", not everyone does well with that. so i wanted to point out that even though this is a layout about my cat, i think the fact that i have animal ornaments is a good "hook" (as if i needed one) to use the woodland animals. animals in general are very organic. so whether it is picking out the christmas tree, or pictures of the ornaments, the animals i think can find a place on your pages… IF the deer, owls and birds being SUPER cute isn't enough of an excuse that is!

so head on over now to the blog of:

lost?? head back to the pretty little studio blog to get back on track!
