~Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop~

I've missed too many of these hops at Nichole Heady's blog and am thrilled to participate this evening.

I pulled out some awesome orange/green DP and

 did  the following:

~Punched some DP circles

~Wrapped them with Papertrey ink eyelet lace borders cut from the same DP

~Arranged them on a strip decorated with background paper made from Tim Holtz marmalade distress ink applied directly to white cardstock.

~Lined up some bling (for some semblance of order) ;)

~Then stamped a sentiment...perfect excuse to catch up with old friends...it will go in the mail soon.

Love this inspirational photo:

Hope you got a chance to participate.

There's still time. ;)

Now off to hop....thanks for stopping in. ;)
