Feeling Kinda Hippy Hoppy?

Happy Friday my scrappy peeps! Welcome to the My Little Shoebox's October blog hop. And what a great hop it is. Lots of inspiration and a chance to win some great prizes! Hopefully, you've hopped on over from Pamela's blog. If not, you can go to the My Little Shoebox blog and start from the beginning. And here's my little layout.
These Days


Those of us who didn't show off the new My Little Shoebox Christmas line, Holly Jolly, created a "mash up" layout, one that mixes various MLS lines. For my layout I chose some Simple Life, Green, Cute as a Button, and Harmony. It was all about the color!

I just LOVE this photo, and I really wanted to let it shine on my layout. So, I kept this one pretty simple. Bright but simple patterns (mostly the B sides), some layered borders, a few die cuts, a pinwheel, and two different alphas.

Ok, lovies, hop along! Pattie Cakes has something fabulous to show you.
