Papertrey Ink Appreciation

So... I was asked a few days ago to participate in a great blog hop- one that I could not possibly miss. It is a very special blog hop to thank and show our appreciation to the great owners and operators of Papertrey Ink. In a time where money is tight and penny's are pinched, this company has emerged and beat all odds. One of the major reasons for their success is the incredible customer service and the feeling of community we get from the designers of these awesome products.

That being said, I would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to Nichole Heady. I do not know how she does it, but she manages to be an incredible wife and mother while juggling the demands of starting a new company and fielding all the ups and downs that come with that. She is absolutely an ispiration to all women and I am glad to "know" her through my stalking of her blogs! HAHA!

So this one is for her! Thanks, Nichole!

Papertrey August Blog Hop

HEY! I haven't had a chance to participate in the blog hop at Papertrey Ink for a while now and I'm super excited to play along this month! Here's this month's challenge: http://www.papertreyink.com/bloghop.html. I thought it was a great challenge! Here is my contribution:

I used the brown lunch bag as an accent on a Thank You card I made. I cut a piece of the bag, stamped the woodgrain background with tea dye ink, and attached it under my focal image as an accent.

I can't wait to see how everyone else used their paper bags! Thanks for taking a look!
