Prettie Sneak Peek

I have my sneak peek for you today! This is Off To School Sophia. Isn't she cute?! Last month she was sent to all of our lucky Paper Pretties Stamp of the Month Club subscribers. Now, she is being released to the public, so you can have her too!



It isn't too late....if you sign up for the Paper Pretties Stamp of the Month Club before midnight tonight, you can still get the July release. Let me tell you....the next Sophia is just as cute as this one!




There have been a couple of challenges issued which I am behind on...so unusual for me, I know! *hehe* Anywho, I decided to combine my sneak peek with not one, but two challenges! I am going for maximum productivity! The most recent challenge, by Christie, was to make a green and white card. Mission accomplished! The challenge before that, issued by Joni, was to use your own drawing or handwriting on a card. I drew in the dragon fly and the butterfly that are flying around Sophia as she skips off to school. Mission #2 accomplished!

Now for the details....the background patterned paper is from a Close To My Heart paper packet called Discovery. Sophia's dress is paper pieced in Making Memories Garden Party paper, also from a paper packet. The stamp is Paper Pretties (of course!). The ribbon is from an SU! share I recently participated in. The rest of the image was coloured using Faber Castell coloured pencils.

Don't forget to stop on over to the Stampin' In Your Jammies Release party in the Paper Pretties Forum on Tuesday, July 1st at 8:00 pm EST. There will be challenges at the top of each hour and prizes to be won!


See you there!
