PPPR "Smarty Pants" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Smarty Pants" blog hop!!  You should have arrived at my blog after visiting the lovely Nanne.  If you missed the beginning of the hop, you will want to head to Lisa's blog.

 There is a special freebie file available for free only today and tomorrow (after that it can be purchased in the PPPR store).  The link to the freebie is on Lisa's blog.

Today's blog hop theme is the "Smarty Pants" and the design team will be showcasing projects related to this using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' files.   Here is what I created for the hop -

I created a back to school layout to showcase some great photos I have of my youngest daughter trying to get her locker opened up :-)  Unfortunately I didn't get my photos back in time and I wanted to be able to get pictures of my project while it was still daylight so maybe I will do a repost when I get the photos on the layout.

I used the "Secondary Supplies" cutting files for my locker and lock cuts.  I used the "Back to School" cutting files for my title and backpack.  

***There is blog candy for our hop today*** -

To be eligible for the blog candy, please be a follower of each of the blogs on our hop today as well as leave a comment on each visit too.  You can get extra chances to win the candy by "liking" the PPPR facebook page and/or subscribing to the PPPR Newsletter.
