Blog Hop for Laurie!!


The Papertrey Paper Dolls are hosting a blog hop today in honor of our fellow Doll, Laurie Willison, who made it to the Top 10 in Gallery Idol. We are so proud and in awe of Laurie and wanted her to know that she will always be OUR Gallery Idol! 
The challenge was to head over to Laurie's blog, find one of of creations to CASE and post on our blogs for today's hop.
 
I am a little late to the Blog Hop but I'm sure Laurie will understand!  So, I knew exactly what card I wanted to CASE!  Here is my CASE of my dear friend Laurie's card.  Her card (CLICK HERE) was made for Round 2 in Gallery Idol. 
 
 

I still remember the day we were at Hobby Lobby.......Laurie, Jen and I were on a quest to find this quilling tool to help us all roll these beautiful flowers.  Well, we found it and it makes the world of difference when rolling these up!

Amy, how sweet of you all to have a blog hop for Laurie. She did so great and I am so sorry she didn't win the Idol, but your card is so pretty. I love those rolled flowers on the tag. So pretty. Never realized you were designing for Lil Inker. Congrats on that! You make gorgeous cards,
