Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop!

Hey there! Tonight I get to participate in the Blog Hop with Papertrey Ink. It has been a loooong while since I have, so I am excited to get hopping!

This months hop is all about fall and the things that inspire it. Color, texture, images... you name it! Well, I didn't get my PTI package yet, so I dug out last years fall set of my choice. First Fruits. I LOVE this set! Here is what I did:

I had some gold fabric that I was using to make pillow covers this last week. This is the side I cut off that shows the salvage (*thats the right term right??) anyway. Thats why you see it frayed at the top with the orange stitching. It's where its weaved together. I stamped on it with the leave image from First fruits, added some velvet ric rac (which I LOVE!) and then (of course) used a button. I like how the melon berry button matches my orange stitches in the fabric! I love love love fall because of the rich colors. That was my first inspiration, but getting dressed in jackets, blazers and sweaters is the other thing I love about fall, which is why I added the fabric to this card.

Thanks for stopping by tonight. Can't wait to see what everyone else creates. If you haven't participated or seen a PTI blog hop, you just gotta stop by. Some really creative people come out each month. It's a real treat to behold. Head on over to the FORUM now and get started hopping!  

Thanks for stopping by!
