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:

pretty little studio: out of the box

the inspiration for "out of the box" for me this month does nothing to calm my need to be by the ocean (more). it IS my happy place!


so right to my last beach vacation pictures i went!

i may be a big fan of cutting machine and die cutting machines, but sometimes just tracing something works too... a plate, or in this case a flip flop. come to find out the flip flop, now outgrown is the flip flop that Cora wore when we went on this vacation. (the box of outgrown shows conveniently waiting to go to goodwill!)

simple, but implies what i had planned!


check out the inspiration available DAILY on the pretty little studio blog!

sketch time!! (pretty little studio)

i am kinda embarrassed. (well, maybe not)
USUALLY i murder a sketch. or at least try to be uber creative in my use of it.

for two months in a row, i have like my assigned sketches so much, i did them a LITTLE but literally!
this is a great sketch! ESPECIALLY when your favorite paper from "nature walk" comes right to ming (arrows) when you see it!

so here is the sketch:


and here is my layout: 


ok. so i didn't go nuts or anything. but that's ok. sometimes the best thing about sketches is that they are time saving and creative in their own right, right? 

be sure to check out the "pretty little studio blog" for more inspiration!
