Time for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

I haven't played along in quite a few month's but when I heard that this month's theme was 'Pretty in Pink' I was all over it with a little ombre on my first project. I am also linking these up to the newest Just us Girls photo challenge and Addicted to CAS.
