PTI August Blog Hop!!!


Welcome hoppers! What a sweet inspiration photo we have to work with this month for the Papertrey Ink blog hop!


When designing my card I pulled out a little sketch I had jotted down months ago after seeing a card from the talented Melissa Phillips. I've used paper from My Minds Eye to mimic some of the items in the photo. The inside of the suitcase, the bouquet of sweet pink flowers and the summer greenery. Perhaps the jar is full  sweet apple jelly to be enjoyed on fresh baked bread while reading a good book! The stamps and dies are from the fruit fusion: apple and tag its #3 as well as double-ended banners and limitless layers dies. Thanks for hopping by today...I'm grateful for your visit and comments! Happy hopping~Lisa
