Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Well it's the 25th so time for the monthly blog hop over at Papertrey Ink. I nearly forgot about this with all the excitement of Stamp-a-Faire, but the lovely Leigh reminded us on the forum - thank you. This months challenge Was a colour challenge and I just loved the soft summer colours


For me the image just made me want to make my own patterned paper inspired by Betsy Veldman.

I promise that in real life and that thing we call daylight it's a lot softer and more melonier!

As I wasn't sure I could stamp as nealy as Betsy I made a circle template to stamp over, using scratch paper and a circle punch. It was just the job.


I must remember to buy some masking tape rather than having to use my washi tape! I know, it's disgraceful, but needs must.

I'm looking forward to heaps of inspiration from the blog hop, so I'm off to look around some blogs. Thanks for stopping by.

Also a big thank you to those that watched the Anna and Ginger do crafting video and all the lovely comments I've had.

Love ya

Ginger
