The Studio Blog Hop

Hello!  I'm just a busy, blog-hopping girl lately :).  The Studio is hopping this weekend, and I am excited to share a new layout with you, as well as give away some Precocious Paper goodies!  If you just arrived from Rossella's blog, I hope you're enjoying the hop.  If not, please join us by starting here.

We've all been inspired by this sketch, provided by the talented Anna Bowkis of Pencil Lines:


I chose to create a layout of my son Carson.  He really likes to help me in the kitchen, and before taking on whatever task I have for him, he likes to grab an apron from my collection.  He prefers this green and orange one because it is the least girly one I own :).  One of these days I need to get him a chef's apron.



Can you tell we live in California?  He's shirtless and it's December in these photos :).


We know you are getting plenty of inspiration and a great sketch to add to your idea file by hopping with us, but we love you too much not to sweeten the hop with prizes!  The grand prize, which you can receive by leaving comments at The Studio and all the designer's blogs, is a Scrap With V package!  And you know I have to give away some Precocious Paper goodies.  Leave a comment AND follow my blog, and you could win this set of handmade embellishments from my Etsy shop:


The hop ends on the 7th and I will announce my winner shortly thereafter.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Hop along to Irini's blog next - you're going to love what she has in store!  Have a great day. Tessa
