Social {Media} Butterflies Blog Hop Featuring Elle's Studio

Hi All! Happy Thursday to you and end to February! Already? Eep! Such a quick month.
Thanks for stopping by on this month's SMB blog hop. We are excited to have you join in and are so excited that Elle Price of Elle's Studio has collaborated with all of us butterflies this month!

Our theme for this month is "love" (fitting right?) and Elle's latest lines were the perfect complement to our theme.

If you have been hopping along, you have arrived via the lovely Miss Jenny. If you are just getting started be sure to hop back to the main site and catch everyone's contributions from the beginning! Lots of lovely inspiration there (pun intended)!

Here is the blog roll for this month:

**** ELLE

I was fortunate enough to make the trip to Anaheim this January to attend CHA-W and to meet up with Elle again. She is such a beautiful gal inside and out and I was so excited to recieve the news that she would be joining us this month on our hop. Her latest designs are so, SO awesome and I am so happy that she has expanded her business to patterned papers too!

Without further prolonging your hopping, here is my scrappy creation for this month, highlighting Elle's  Studio Lil Snippets "You & Me" Labels, Circle Tags and journaling cards. I used my Silhouette Cameo for the heart die; customizing it to fit my creative ideas for the layout. And I broke out my October Afternoon SprINKler and paint brush and set to scrap play. Kinda had a bit of fun distressing the heart with the mist and brush.

 I still plan to stitch around the "home" on the title card and add our address as well.

I have used a bunch of Elle's newest releases in my Project Life too. This particular week was featured on Elle's blog recently (thank you Elle for sharing it!):

Seriously so much fun and happiness playing with Elle's Studio newest releases. Be sure to hop on over to each Butterfly's blog and leave a little love along the way! I am always inspired by what my fellow contributors create! Follow along the hop and follow me on Instagram/Twitter "@SuzMannecke"- leaving comments along the way enters you in an Elle's Studio prize pack giveaway pictured below!!!
