Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - March 2009 - Backgrounds



Welcome to my first Papertrey Ink Blog Hop post! I started this blog in February just so that I could participate in PTI events, and I've finally done it. For my background paper, I just did a simple pattern using Polka Dot Basics in bright colors. This was my first attempt at making my own patterned paper. Here it is:


The candy pouch was inspired by Nichole's Wooly Sheep card and a sample that I saw somewhere for the SU! Pillow Box die. This pouch is actually hand cut and scored from a template that got when I was a hobby SU! demonstrator a few years ago.

On a side note, since I've discovered PTI, I've been spending a lot more time stamping and blogging. My husband told me that he's going to start his own blog named "Stampy Widower!"

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to play with my PTI order that arrived today. : )
