Fall Blog Hop!!


Welcome to the Fall Blog Hop with Circle Sisters!

You should be coming from the very talented DoodleDiva. If you've just happened to come across my blog, please check out each of these talented ladies' blogs. You will want to start at Kristen's blog for the beginning of the hop.

For my project, I made a Thanksgiving dinner hostess gift!  I made a pillow box from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart as well as a matching card/envelope.  I cut the box at 8", the border at 1.5" and the label at 2" - it was my first pillow box and so fun and easy to make!  And its a great size, will be perfect to fill up with chocolate!  :-)  Both stamps from the box and card front are from CTMH 'Jubilation' set and the inside sentiment is from My Pink Stamper 'Happiest Moments'.  All the paper is from my stash, though I wish I knew what brand it was so I could get more - I love it!




Your next stop is Lisa - thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
