October Afternoon *9to5* bloghop...


October Afternoon has a new collection coming out soon called 9 to 5.  It's a retro look at office supplies from the 70's (or 50's or 60's i don't really know... wasn't around then) but with the wonderful crisp clean colors that I have come to love about October Afternoon.

The blog hop starts at the October Afternoon blog (they have some cool prizes over there!)... and the next blog that you should HOP to after mine is...Becky Novacek at Becky Novacek Photography Blog



I created this page using the 9 to 5 line for the OA booth at CHA... but this is the first time that I have shown it on my blog. My idea was to create a Project life type of page as I feel this particular collection would lend itself wonderful to that end.


Today, you can leave a comment on my blog and you can win...a packet of Little Flyers sponsored by OA! : )

I don't think it's a secret how much i adore OA. I love them for the whimsical playful designs, the amazing fresh colors and wonderful patterns. Here's a couple of a few other collections that i cannot get enough of:



Love and a kiss
