PTI Blog Hop



Hi Everyone!

For a change I actually remembered the PTI Blog Hop this month.
The challenge this time around was to use the color yellow. You can read all about it here. Then go check out the rest of the hop over here.

I decided to use my newest PTI set A Day at the Beach. I also used Polka Dot Basics for the background. I tore, crumpled up and then smoothed out a piece of kraft paper for my "sand dune". The umbrella was cut out and mounted with 3-D foam. I couldn't decide if I like the Melon Berry or the Spring Rain better... so I did both.


I LOVE the "life is good" sentiment with this set. Worked perfectly for a couple of simple summery cards.


Enjoy the rest of the blog hop and thanks for hopping by here!
