PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to this month's PTI Blog Hop...the challenge...use a paper bag! 

Well...you know how you go into the craft room with an idea and then come out with something completely different?  That was me with this month's challenge.  I had every intention of using Mish's notebook set for this card...with the "Take Note" sentiment and a pencil.  Had visions of a book wrapped in paper to remind me of my high school and college days.  And, I ended up with this!  No school themes....but plenty of fall colors!  I am in love with my new PTI Embellishment stamps and had fun using a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks to make these two cards.  Hope you enjoy them!  Happy blog hopping!
Ingredients:  SU Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla paper; Tim Holtz Distress Inks; Clear Embossing Powder; PTI Twine, Embellishment Stamps; Laura Ashley and Making Memories Buttons
