Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Yummy Blog Hop

 Hi friends! Welcome to another hop with your favorite ever shop…Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon! Just checking you are in the right place, did you come from Kathy's blog, right? Well if not and you aren't sure, just head up to PPPR and check it out there! 

 As you may be able to tell..our theme this week is something Y U M M Y! You've got a chance to win a little something from the hop as well as by creating your own yummy project following the monthly challenge as well! Yay! For chances to win, hop and comment, follow EACH blog (I know, it's a lot but we rock, right? LOL!) Want even MORE chances to win? Like us on Facebook or sign up for the PPPR newsletter
 So I did something just a bit different or rather, not totally "yummy" themed. But I created my own background paper using the die cut files. I love this option because you can customize things so particularly. Plus this was just a lazier version then having die cut each image and laying them flat on the paper (amazing as that would have been for the background). I chose my colors, grouped the file and print! Boom! All done! Now I did need this ridiculously darling fan cut out so he could be the center of focus- as he so deserves! 

 Hope you like this! 

 Can't find or own the trendy Wink of Stella pen? No problem, a good old glitter gel pen still works fine!

 Trying hard to keep this short for the hops so you are all not totally overwhelmed! Thanks for visiting and thanks SO much for following! You ROCK!

 Next stop….MELISA

What a fabulous idea of making your own paper background with the Popsicles. I have a few files but the fan is the only one I've used so far. Great job!
