HAPPY FRIDAY!!! This Friday is even more happier - that's right, I said more happier - because I get to reveal my layout on the PRETTY LITTLE STUDIO BLOG using the very latest (and my new favoritest) Neapolitan Collection - which just happens to start shipping today! Seriuosly, this collection falls in the droolworthy category. There was such a large assortment of cute things to choose from that I wanted to add them all to my layout! This is what I came up with:
The PLS Neapolitan Collection includes 4x6 journaling cards, including one that had this Ice Cream logo, which was the inspiration for my layout about my sweet eigth grader:
Of course, I had to layer things over, under and around it! And, just for good measure, I sewed on it, too!
At first, my layout was simply going to state, "I like Ice Cream and you," which would have been cute and a phrase that certainly fits the Huntress. But then, I saw word stickers included in the collection. Many of the phrases were activities that my daughter actually enjoys doing right now, so this layout turned into a current events-themed thing - perfect when paired with her first-day-of-school pic!
I turned the stickers into pennants simply by cutting the ends. I love finding slightly different ways to use my scrapbooking supplies!
And, finally, the one thing that had me jumping up and down and yelling like I had won the grand prize at a county fair raffle - FLAIR!!! Pretty Little Studio has Flair! And I luuurrrrrvvvveee flair! Can I say it again? Yes, I think I shall. I.Love.Flair. I do. I love it.
That's it for me today. I am off to work for a few hours and then hoping to get in some quality crafting time this weekend! What about you? What projects do you have planned???
