Friendship blog hop-PPPR

Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon's Friendship blog hop.

You should of arrived here from Melissa's blog but if you just stopped by and want to join the hop, please go HERE to get the hop line up...

 For today's hop, all of our projects are about FRIENDSHIP and we used the cutting files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon shop.
I decided to create a layout for my niece kaia and her besty Tess..
I wanted to use bright prints and colors, plus some fun die cuts from PPPR..

This is what I created:

Love those adorable little faces :)
My niece Kaia is on the left and her besty on the right..

how about some fun close ups:

Loved creating this big banner with the title phrase, the banner is located in the Simple Banner cutting file..

The cute little pink car.. 
It's actually from the Christmas car cutting file, but works great in many other projects.
I adore how Whimsical it is :)

Loved creating these flowers with the leaves.. 
The large background cut out is from the "Layered Labels" cutting file

I wish I would of added some glossy accents to the centers of the flowers, but totally forgot :)

Such fun expressions  on these faces.. These girls are from the "Let it Snow" cutting file..
Because the cutting files are paper piecings, you don't have to use but a part of it.. 

She's all "Peek-a-boo!"..LOL

"Say Cheese!"  

I added a few hearts here and there, they are from the "Heart Balloon" cutting file. Some of the hearts I added to the branch, the branches are in the Flowers assortment cutting file.. 
and I added glossy accents to the letters creating a great 3D effect..

This photo I took at an angle so you can see the layers of the flowers and leaves..

and there you have project...
