Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop Challenge!


I am so excited! This is my first blog hop post! Every month, the gang at Papertrey Ink posts a challenge for their monthly blog hop, and for the month of July, we were challenged to use office supplies on our project! I decided to use a bunch of my favorite PTI stamp sets, and snuck in a tiny file folder, and a jumbo paperclip. I gotta tell ya, this definately was a challenge, and it stumped me for quite awhile. Here is the end result:

Here is a peek inside the mini file folder on the front :)




And finally, a look inside... A good spot for a handwritten note! :)
