pti blog hop...live your bliss

its been a while since I played along with the PTI blog hop

I took some time last night and decided to play along!

Here's my take
I used the gingham backgrounds and some flower dies and I misted a doily black

I guess this fits with the Moxie Fab gingham challenge too, LOL

Thanks for peekin!!

let the sunshine in...

Happy Friday!!!

Our challenge from Bella land was blue yellow and black

I have alwayas thought the blooms from mixed media flowers looked like a sun so I masked off most of it and used it as a sun this time.

I clear embossed love notes background and used some mists

Next week's challenge

I did a bit of crafting friday night and was determined to use some stuff that was neglected

I have a super easy one for y'all today!

I decided to play along with the CASUAL FRIDAYS challenge this week which was flowers or trees.

I got this adorable memory box die at scrapfest and was itching to use it.

Probably the easiest card ever!!
