Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge


I've been wanting and wanting to participate
in the PTI blog hop.....I just haven't had the time,
until now!!!


I am sooooo stinking excited about this.....
The challenge this month was to use a lunch bag in your creation.
When I read that....nothing immediately came to me....
in fact, it took a very long time to come up with what
I was going to do.
I finally decided that I'd make a gift bag!  My sister's birthday is
in October, and I just got this new PTI leaf set, so it was perfect!!

This was so much fun to make....seriously!
And those stinking leaf stamps and dies are just wonderful!








Details:
Stamps: Leaf Prints, Tea for Two Additions,
and Places Please - all from PTI
Paper: Rustic White, choc chip
Ink: Terra Cotta, Ripe Avocado, More Mustard,
Soft Suede, and So Saffrom
Misc: Lunch bag, PTI dies, buttons, jute twine, dimensionals,
scor tape, and ribbon.
