Introducing . . .

We are pleased to have a Guest Designer this week  . . . Let’s introduce Donna Durand
We have some more awesome projects by Donna that will be featured this week!


Hello scrappers!  I’m Donna Bryant Durand and may I start by saying that I am thrilled to be guest designing for Pretty Little Studio!!!  Before I share my projects, a little background about me.  I’ve always had a passion for photos and memorabilia and have been scrapbook for well, what seems like always.  I started scrapbooking in 2000!!!  I married my big guy Ken in February of 2004 and work as a litigation paralegal.  I’ve no children or pets, but am a really proud Auntie to a niece and nephew that I adore.  I love ribbon, buttons and lace and I don’t feel a project is complete without them.

Even after all this time, its still hard for me to describe my style, but I know I love clustering lots and lots of little pieces of pretty things together!!

I don’t so much find time to create, but make time for it!

Its almost impossible to choose a favorite PLS product – I love them all, but I must say I LOVE the big numbers!!!

I find inspiration in all different kinds of places, my photos, sometimes from a song, but am mostly inspired by certain products I see, both fabric and paper.

My favorite color to scrapbook is kraft with anything bright, so I guess, I have not one favorite.

Five fun facts about me:  I LOVE being barefoot – all year.  I’ve been shark fishing off the waters of Georgia two (2) times, and had a ball!  I swam with a wonderful dolphin names Lewis in the ocean in Mexico – I still think of him!!
