Have I mentioned before how lucky I am to be part of the Papertrey Peeps. These girls are so amazingly creative! Every visit to their blogs makes my eyes pop and jaw drop. Thanks girlies, for all the beauty, fun, inspriration, and kindness!
Carol has issued a fun challenge on the Papertrey Peeps Blog to use Mary Englebreit as our inspiration. I always check out the Mary Englebreit dollar bins at Michaels and have some really cute notepads to use as shopping lists However,I am not sure how Ed feels as he is walking through the grocery store with his bright, happy and CUTE grocery list. Hee-hee.
I made a couple of tags trying to capture Mary's style. I went through my PTI stamps first looking for images that reminded me of M. E. The most obvious stamp to me was a stamp from Everyday Buttons Bits. Mary and cherries--yep! So this was the beginning of the first tag.
The beginning of this next tag was an image from this year's PTI anniversary set with a paper base of Raspberry Fizz and Plum Pudding Bitty Dot Basics.
A couple of happy tags to brighten some kraft gift bags!
