Thankful Blog Hop





Hello and welcome, Emily here at Creations of An Army Wife. I'm so excited to be to using my Peachy Keen Stamps along with the wonderful cut files from Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons!! Lisa has so many cute files as well as digital papers and stamps!! So please be sure to check her store out!! 

If you have come from Nanne's Creations then you are in the right spot. If you have just stopped by for a visit or would like to start at the beginning of our hop just head over to Lisa's Blog at Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons Blogspot.

So let me share with you what I created for today's hop......



I decided that this cut file would go along great with a thankful tree. So I had my oldest son help me to pick out some PK sentiments that would help convey what blessings we have and are very thankful for. My son was persistent that we have one that said "Bugs". He is right, we do need to be thankful for bugs because they help bring the beautiful flowers. :)

I wanted to add some pictures of my two boys as well as my baby girl that will be born next year. It may be hard to tell but that is her head shot from my 19 weeks ultrasound. My son said I couldn't leave out my fur babies either. So we added Oliver and Orion as well!


How gorgeous is this Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons title? I just love it!! Perfect for your fall projects.
