Summer is HERE!

Has the pace slowed down any at your house?

Not too much here.

Other than no school, the rest of the summer is pretty full ...

dance, piano, and multiple camps.

If you are one to embrace slow and steady here's a sweet image for you...

Bayou digi by ARTish

He's the first of two New Releases at Paper Pretties

Every Monday we add 2 digis to our growing collection!

We call the segment: Monday Whatnots, what's not to love!?

I found the sketch to be inspirational from Pink Gem Challenge

as well as the following challenges...

Catch the Bug Bright Colors + optional Flower Soft
Simply Stampin Floral Frenzy (*use 1+ SU stamps)
Emerald Faerie Challenge Anything Goes
2 Sisters Anything Goes

To create this...

I used the background paper's flower stem, as well as the additional one that I cut and tucked behind Baoyu en lieu of straight strips of paper.

By snail mail or email it's good to hear...

The second New Release today is... Garner digi by ARTish
