Paper Dolls Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Dolls blog hop!  The Paper Dolls are a fabulous group that I belong to on the PTI Forum!  Be sure to visit our Paper Dolls blog! We have bi-weekly challenges that are open ended so you can participate at any time! We are here today to show you some PTI creations and giveaway some fun stuff!  There is a list at the end of this post of all the Dolls participating!  Be sure to check them out!



The theme for this blog hop is:  PTI

We decided to pay tribute to the reason why we are all here in the first place - a love for all things Papertrey Ink. Each creation you see along the hop this week will have something that starts with a P, something that starts with a T and something that starts with an I on it.

Here is my card: P=Polka Dots (my fave!) T=Tea for Two and I=Ink because I am not creative like that!  :)

I used my Scor-Pal for those two lines on the side!  I love this tea set!   So many possibilites!

Another part of this blog hop is to share a little about myself!  I am a SAHM (sort of) and am an RN working 1 to 2 days a week at our local clinic!  I have 2 kiddos who I love spending time with!  My dd is in 1st grade and my ds is 2 and a hand full!  :)  One of my most favorite things to do besides stamping is traveling!  I wish I had more time to do it!  I have been scrapbooking since around 1998 and making cards since 2007.  I love stamping!  It is like therapy to me!  I sell my cards at a couple of local stores and have a good customer base too, that call me up when they need a certain type of card!  I am currently on the DT for DeNami Designs which is alot of fun!!
So that is it for me today!  Be sure to leave comments on each of the Blog Hop posts...we are offering up a fun prize! One randomly selected winner from all the comments left on the Dolls' posts will receive the wonderful stamp set, "Made of Snow." 

We'd also love for you to play along with us and link up your creations on the InLinkz tool over at the Paper Dolls blog!  Linking up one of your creations following our theme will get you in a drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate to PTI!

All comments and projects should be in by midnight on Sunday, March 13th. We'll randomly select the winner for both prizes on Monday, March 14th and announce it here on the Dolls' Blog!

Here is a list of all the Dolls!  Be sure to stop by and leave some love!

  22. Yes, leaving LOTS OF LOVE for you, Laurie!! I think it's great that you are able to sell your cards locally. They are *always* so fabulous, this beauty included.

  46. Yikes! I just realized I never left a comment on this gorgeous card of yours! I remember seeing it way back when, but was too eager to move along with the hop and clearly I didn't make it back through all of the cards when leaving comments! Anywho. Forgive me, please?!?! I love the simple elegance of this card...it may not use your 'signature colors, but it definitely screams 'Laurie' to me!
