Design Team Day & Challenge Winners

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I can't believe it's already the middle of July.  Summer is just flying by!  I'm so excited to share with you all of the awesome Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons projects the PPPR Design Team created this week.  They are amazing!  I also have the winners of the PPPR Get Well Challenge to announce, so be sure to stay tuned for that.  

First of all, here's the project I created for today:

These little s'mores came from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) S'mores Cutting Files set.  I printed and cut the layers, keeping the graham cracker layers grouped together so the holes on the cracker would show up, but I'd have a smooth surface to stamp those cute little faces on.  Those faces came from the Peachy Keen June 2013 Stamp of the Month.  I think they are perfect for these little love-s'mores!  I colored in the stamps with my white Gelly Roll pen and some other gel pens I have on hand.  I also added some chalk to their little cheeks.  The thought bubble is from the PPPR Speech Bubbles Cutting Files set, and I got the heart from the PPPR Safari Love Cutting Files set.  I created the card base with a shape from the PPPR Sentiment Spots 2 Cutting Files set.  That sweet sentiment is from Pink by Design's Woodland Critters Stamp Set.  I added some doodle marks, and my little card was all done!  I love how it turned out...those s'mores are just too cute!

Okay, are the fantastic projects my Design Team came up with.  It would be wonderful if you could stop by their blogs to leave them some sweet comments. :)
