And what's a blog hop without give-aways?  Be sure to visit all the blogs, including the Pretty Little Studio and Love My Tapes blogs for a chance to win some PLS and LMT goodies!  When visiting the Design Team member's blogs, be sure and leave comments as many of the Design Team members will also be hosting their own Blog Hop giveaways.

The Hop will start on the Pretty Little Studio blog and end on the Love My tapes blog, so head on over to the Pretty Little Studio BLOG if you are just joining in.  We will announce the winners of the PLS and LMT giveaways on May 3rd, so be sure to be watching for the announcements.  If you get lost along the way, just check below to get you hopping in the right direction.

Now, you should have just arrived from Jenni Calma's blog HERE.  
Okay, let's get hopping!
Here is a quick little layout I did starring my youngest smart girl, who was just inducted into the National Junior Honor Society!  

I have never been a huge tape user - before now.  The LMT products that I was given were so easy to use and extremely versatile.  I matted my layout with the tape, I made a photo corner with my tape, I adhered it to dark cardstock to make a banner, and I adhered it to white card stock and punched stars.  When you combine that with my PLS papers which I discovered a while back can be used on ANY and EVERY type of layout - well, it's "so fab" - just like my girl! (no I could not resist!)

A little close-up:

I think the Love My Tapes banner that I made and the Pretty Little Studio title created using papers from the Birthday Cake Collection go pretty well together!

I am loving all this loveliness, and to celebrate the "fabness" of it all - I am giving away a $10 gift card on May 4th to Pretty Little Studio's Store to some lucky person who leaves a comment on my blog and the PLS BLOG and the LMT BLOG.  That's right, leave a comment on all three blogs by the end of the blog hop and you could win a gift certificate to the wonderful online store that started my love affair with all papercrafting things vintage!

Okay, that about wraps it up for me.  Next on the list is Lisa Spiegel who can be found right HERE!
