Hi everyone. We're home from our little get-away at The Sweetest Place on Earth - Hershey, PA. A wonderful time was had by all - me at Quilt Odyssey and DH & DGD at Hersheypark. I was a little down about having to leave, but all that was overshadowed by finding out I won the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Contest and - please don't hate me - the gift certificate from Aspiring to Creativity! (you can see the card here) I'm just ecstatic and overwhelmed, two new sets in one day! I know. I know. You hate me.
I wasn't able to do a blog post for the Hop but loved everything I have seen so far. I'm still hopping! So if I haven't gotten to you, I hope to some time this week.
I wanted to share with you the altered journal my granddaughter and I made. Her teacher requested that they keep one this summer and here it is. (Those are two bookmarks peeking out that she also made using All Booked Up)
We picked out some old patterned paper about summer that she liked (she's my pink & purple gal). She stamped the loose leaf lines and the A+ from PTI's It's Official, the Official circle is from 7Gypsies. I showed her how to tear the paper and she used punches for the others. On the inside cover she adhered a library card with her personal info using Heather Nichols' newest release. And heres the best part . . .
She's used it everyday she's been with us. She's 8 years old and entering third grade in the fall. She says to tell you all she LOVES PTI stamps!
Thanks for stopping by.
