Memories - Pretty Little Studio

Day 3 with Pretty Little Studio!!!

I started with another one of the amazing vintage character, Clark.  Well, how could I not use these cute photos of my little man playing for the Indians!  This was his first year playing t-ball.

Pulling the perfect colors out of the Ain't Life Grand collection makes the photos and Clark, pop.  I used the Shutterbug Stickers to carry on the round baseball theme.  
I journaled directly on the 12x12 paper.  
Thanks for stopping by again today!

Pats vs Dolphins - Pretty Little Studio

It's day 2 of my adventure over at Pretty Little Studio!
For today, I was inspired by the little vintage Freedie Football.  They have several vintage style people that are super adorable.  They match really well with all of their collections too.  

I used Ain't Life Grand for this football layout.  
I picked out all the blues, black and touches of green that I could find.  

There is a really good story behind this photo, be sure to read the journaling!

Beautiful - Pretty Little Studio

Good morning!
It is so exciting to receive an unexpected remaining asking if you wanna be a guest designer!  
I received just that from Pretty Little Studio.
They have the most darling collections.  
You will see, for the next four days, I will be all over their blog/social media.  

They were extremely generous with their product.  
I thought it was going to be a challenge for me to use 8x8 papers.  
It was so very easy.  I realistically don't use the entire sheets of 12 x 12 anyway.  
Lets look at what I have done for today....

By dear chum and I meet for lunch and shopping on occasion.  Not as often as we would like.  We snapped these fun photos of us laughing at ourselves so hard!

I used the Tales and Dreams collection for this bright, cheerful project.

Memories - Paper Issues and A Flair for Buttons


Take a look at the excited mama!!!  I was more excited than Roman when he received Student of the Month last year in 6th grade.  He received a homework pass and never used it!  oops.  This boy keeps impressing me.  

I am killing two birds with one big stone here.  I used A Flair for Buttons flair on a really fun layout for Paper Issues.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to play with the Scraplift challenge or the Bigger is Better challenge.  I lifted it and used a big title!  I decided on the Bigger is Better challenge because I have never played along with that before.  It is super fun,  All you do is....

-Grab those giant chipboard words, Fire up those cutting machines, use those LARGE Stickers and create a BIG Title on your page! Any subject, any paper project type. 

You have until March 4th to enter a project based on this challenge. Please keep in mind this must be a NEW made for this challenge project.-

Add some fun flair from the A Flair for Buttons ETSY shop.  

I used Photoplay - Boys Rule from the Paper Issues store.  Grab it or anything else from there for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.  You can use the code anytime.
