Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge!



Good morning, everyone!

This is my 2nd post for the day!  If you are looking for the Outlawz CAS challenge for this week, please CLICK HERE!


 I don't get to participate in many of the PTI blog hops because if they don't hit on the weekends, I can't link up to Nichole's blog.  So, when I get a chance to hop along, like this weekend, you better believe that I'm going to participate!


I can say that I never used this color combination, but I definitely should have!  Love all of the "happy" vibes you get from the turquoise, gold and white!

I wanted you to see how pretty the patterned paper was on the bottom butterfly.  You may have to click to enlarge the photo to see it better.

This photo is to show off the details in this impression plate and background stamp set.  The background was so incredibly easy to line up with the extra clear rubber around the edge of the image.  Love this change by PTI to their background stamps!

This month's blog hop was based on the image below and here is what Nichole posted on her blog for this challenge:

We are excited to get back to our inspiration challenges for the blog hop each month.  For the month of March we wanted to focus on sunshine and the upcoming spring season.  What better way to do so than with a fresh color scheme of aqua & yellow.  Use the inspiration piece as a jumping point for your color scheme, pattern combinations, overall design or whatever else inspires your creativity.  We look forward to seeing your creations!
