PTI January Blog Hop


The challenge
With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. If you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of each set's sale page on our website, or go to the Previous Countdown page here on my blog where each set is organized by month of release. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again!
Here is my creation. I used an old one that I haven't busted out in a long time. Teacher's Apple
Isn't this a beauty? I love the rainbow effect and look this card took on. I used some dsp from Stampin Up to get the dictionary backbround. I bought this set when my oldest was a baby knowing it was perfect and I would have a use for it one day. This is her first year in preschool and I just can't wait to give this beauty to her teacher and the aid.
Have a great night hopping!
It's a good life!
