Along with the PTI blog hop I am entering a few other challenges.. all listed below!

Lets get on with it shall we!! Here is a close up of my flower.. I have to say I LOVE how it turned out.. and will be making MORE! :) I just cut 4 circles sized 1 1/4 up to 2 inches.. then added score tape along the outside (I tried my Xxyron but it wasnt strong enough) then wrapped the ribbon... added each circle on top of each other.. topped it off with one of the buttons I made with digi paper and my dies!
Here is what I made up - I just LOVE templates.. and this time I decided to whip up PTIs Take Along Tote- It was so QUICK and EASY! (dont ya LOVE that!)
Used my new stamps, and dies from PTI! and of course spellbinders dies... I really liked Heathers example in the idea book you get when you buy these.. she put the pockets inside the box, so I did that too.. it isnt filled yet.. but here is a photo so you can see them!
