Welcome to the very first Papertrey Paper Dolls Blog Hop! Our hop starts today, March 9th and ends on March 13th. Two prizes are being awarded ~ one for leaving a comment on our Blog Hop posts and one for playing along with our blog hop challenge and linking it up on the Paper Dolls Blog. Check out the Dolls blog for details.
I'm honored to be part of such an amazing group of papercrafters. I've only been a part of the Dolls group for about one month even though I've been following (and giving all my money to) Papertrey Ink since they first started as a company in 2007.
Our theme for this hop is in honor of what brought us together as a group: P.T.I. ~ meaning each project you seen along the hop will have something that starts with a P, T and I. For my card I chose:
P = Pure Poppy cardstock
T = Through the Trees and twine
I = Impression Plate (Woodgrain)
When Lee Anne first issued the challenge I had an idea in mind to use Through the Trees, this is NOT that idea. I didn't like how it was turning out so I started over and ended up with this.
I distressed the edges of the pure poppy base and tag with Fresh Snow ink. The white layer is distressed with ink too. It just didn't show in the photo.
In addition to the challenge we are also sharing a little about ourselves so our fellow Dolls and visitors can get to know us. As most of you know, I am from Hawaii originally, but I now live in Indiana. I came out here to go to college many moons ago and met my husband. We moved to Arizona right after we got married and enjoyed nine years there. I really miss living there. About five years ago we felt led to move back to Indiana.
My husband and I have been married for almost 14 years and have two daughters ages 12 and 9. I am blessed to be able to work part-time from home doing administration and finances for our church. Before I had children, I was a high school math teacher. I think it's so interesting how many of us in this group are/were teachers.
Enough about me you've gotta continue hopping. Here's the next blog on the hop:
