I’m so glad you’ve come to visit my blog today! If you came here from Nicole’s blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.
The theme for our hop is Anything Goes. So, we are using our imaginations to create fun projects using any Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files we want.
I had a story I wanted to tell about when my daughter was sick this fall. She has a full schedule with all honors classes (except for PE) and being out a full week was not something she was very happy about. I was glad to be able to be home to keep an eye on her, keep her company and serve her some “India therapy” in the form of Chai Tea and a couple of games of Parcheesi (that she won, of course!) I felt that the Hot Cocoa Cutting Files with the sweet sentiment and mug with heart-shaped steam was perfect, along with the Feeling Icky Title Cutting File.
Here’s a slightly different angle:
(I’m entering a few challenges with this layout. I’ll go over the details after the blog hop information.)
The blog candy for this hop is a $15 GC to the PPPR store.
For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and leave a comment at each stop of the hop. For extra chances, you can also “LIKE” Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on Facebook and/or sign up for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Newsletter. A random winner will be chosen for the prize on Tuesday, February 17, 2015.
Don’t forget to pick up the Blog Hop freebie on Saturday and Sunday of the hop, only…then it will be available for sale in the store. It’s this super cute Chihuahua file!

I also used the Inspiration on Thursday – Colour Challenge Style at Scrap Much? I really felt these colors were wonderful with the game board.
And since this is also a great color combination that goes with Red and Pink I’m entering the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Red+Pink.
ETA: Also linking this up with Paper Issues New Issue: It’s Hip to be Square since I’ve got some square photos as well as the gridded background paper.
