So, I have some projects to share with you!  I couldn't decide if I wanted to do paper or digital for the hop so I decided to mix it up just a bit. ;) I created 2 layouts for you using paper but, I used my upcoming digital templates as sketches for them. (You'll be able to purchase the templates starting next Tuesday, November 8th.) Also, make sure to scroll down all the way to the bottom of the post for the supply list. :)






These are the digital templates that I used as sketches for the above layouts. These will be available for purchase HERE in my store starting November 8th.




Now for the super fun part....I am giving away one $15.00 gift certificate from Two Peas! All you need to do to enter the drawing is leave me a comment. Also, if you are so inclined, feel free to become a follower. ;) :) :)

Next in line for the hop is the super-duper talented Kimber McRay. Make sure and head to her blog for some gorgeous inspiration! 

Thanks for visiting!
