August 2010 Papertrey Blog Hop!


It is officially Papertrey Blog Hop time!  This is one of my favorite times of the month!


This month's blog hop challenge was this:

"In honor of school going back into session everywhere, we thought it would be fun to issue a Brown Bag
Challenge. We want to see what you can do to dress up, alter, change an ordinary brown lunch bag into
a paper crafting work of art."


I received my new Papertrey goodies in the mail yesterday and broke them out to use for this card.
Leaf Prints.....awesome stamp set. Love love how you can stamp the veins in different colors over the leaves. And can you say matching dies? I am soo giddy over dies lately.....I think it has something to do with Papertrey! {wink}


I used my brown paper bag as the base of my card and I used my new leaf dies to die cut some leaves.  The leaves were stamped and crumpled up.....love that look! 


Have fun blog hopping with Papertrey!!
