The Twinery and Pretty Little Studio Blog Hop!

Hello friends and welcome to The Twinery and Pretty Little Studio blog hop!  If you're here from Maryanne's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to The Twinery blog to get started!  I've been a huge fan of PLS for years and participating in this blog hop has been such fun!  I chose products from their Silly Monkey line because "silly monkey girl" is a nickname we've used with Amelia since she was a newborn!  :)
The first project is a card that can be used for a new baby or other congratulatory occasion.  I started off with a green card base and layered two of the patterned papers from the collection pack over it.  I stamped the bottom of the grid paper repeating the words "hurrah!" and "bravo!"  I added the adorable Silly Shadow die cut and finished it off with some star stickers, some sequins, and some Solid Peapod twine.
My next project is a fairly simple tag.  I took a large white shipping tag and stamped it with the birthday sentiment, some balloons, and some stars and swirls and added the Silly Pepper die cut to the bottom.  I tied the tag with some Marigold Solid, Peapod Stripe, and Marachino Solid twines.

My last project is an 8x8 page for Amelia's scrapbook.  I used the cute heart paper from the collection pack as the background and punched a couple of hearts from the red polkadot paper.  I mounted two photos of Amelia when we visited Patrick's Point this summer wearing her sock monkey fuzzy romper thingie.  I love those fleece zip ups and this one had sock monkey feet, a little emblem on the chest, and ears on the hood.  Adorable.  I added some Marachino Solid twine to the edges of the photo and finished with the Silly Maddie and Sparkle die cut.
