Makin' a Splash...


Hello all my Prettie friends...
Two weeks ago, Jules challenged us Prettie Girls to create a card using the sketch shown here. I love a sketch challenge, so this was fun for me.

I also missed hangin' w/ my fellow Prettie Girls last week as I was on vaca and couldn't do the challenge, so it's nice to be back in the game! I was especially excited to use the BRAND NEW "Splish Splash" Sophia! She is the stamp of the Month over at Paper Pretties for May. Isn't she sweet as can be? She somehow reminds me of my little one too even though they look NOTHING alike :) At any rate I LOVE her!
Now, I have to admit I did this card w/out looking closely enough at the sketch and I sort of forgot about the scalloped sides, but that's the beauty of a sketch right? You don't ALWAYS have to follow it to a 't"...LOL. Well, at any rate I had a great time getting back into the Pretties game...and it was fun to "make a splash" right back into my weekly challenges with my friends and fellow DT. :)

Have you SEEN the adorable new Stamp Storage Binders over at Paper Pretties, too? I am in LOVE! They are BEAUTIFUL! I had no idea when Christie mentioned that she would be carrying them how absolutely wonderful they would turn out! They are embossed with my FAVORITE Sophia of all time, Flutter by, and come in Pink or Celery. They hold up to TEN pages of storage, too! Check out the Paper Clip at THIS post for inside views of the binder and to see ALL the cuteness! I'm so excited they are for sale!

Lots of fun stuff going on this month over at Paper Pretties! Don't forget to check out our weekly challenges, too, for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the boutique! The challenges are posted weekly on the forum and also on the Paper Clip.

Well, that's about all for today but I'll see you all soon! Check out the rest of my Prettie Peeps to see what they came up with using Julie's sketch!

Have a great day!
Jessica :)
