PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

Happy Friday!  Popping in to share my card inspired by this month's PTI blog hop.  I'm a little bit later than normal joining the blog hop, but life is a little busy this week.  I was super happy to come home and squeeze in a little card making time.  This month's challenge was to use scallops.  I decided to pull out a scrap scallop circle that I had in my stash and add the Larger than Life flowers along with a sweet sentiment.  I like to have Just Because cards in my card box.


Ingredients:  Stamps:  PTI Larger than Life and Mega Mixed Messages; Ribbon: SU Crumb Cake; Paper:  My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose; Ink:  SU Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip and Pretty In Pink; Pearls:  Kaiser Kraft

Hope your weekend is getting off to a great start.  My brother and sister-in-law are out of town this week so I'm taking my niece to college orientation tomorrow morning at the University of Cincinnati's design college.  It should be a fun morning...I keep thinking though...how did this sweet little chubby cheeked girl become this beautiful teenager almost ready to graduate from high school?
And how lucky am I that I get to share these wonderful new times with her?
