Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Frances challenged the Prettie Girls to create a scrapling. I had no idea what a scrapling was. A scrapling is the "scrap" you'd get from cutting down a 4.25"x5.5" card to 4.25" square. You're left with a 4.25"x1.25" piece. Frances said the scrapling could be no wider than 2.5". After finding out what a scrapling was and actually making one, I really like them! I made mine into a bookmark. I put magnets on the inside so that it will "hug" a page in a book. I thought this one would be adorable for Savannah. . .especially now that she's learning to read. So, thank you Frances for introducing me to something new!

I used the Beach Bum set and the sentiment is from Off To School Sophia from Paper Pretties. Paper Pretties has a new release coming up on September 1st! Sneak Peeks start August 30th! :)
Make to sure to stop and see what the other Prettie Girls created for this challenge:


Today it's my turn to issue the next challenge to the Prettie Girls, so my challenge is an inspiration challenge and here's the inspiration:
