September 2010 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

Well, I am super excited to have finally remembered the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop on the right day!  This time it is an all day thing, which really works much better for me!!!

For today's blog hop Nichole asked everyone to create a project using one of your favorite learned skills that you have learned from a fellow blogger or friend.  For the past year or so I have been really in to blog hopping, and usually visit certain blogs once a week to make sure I haven't missed anything.  One blog I always go to first is Dawn McVey's Blog.  She always has something very inspirational on there, whether it is color combos or techniques.  The one I use the most is her poofy vintage print flower, I am always going back and reviewing her video.

Here is my take on the poofy flower.

 Instead of the scalloped circle punch I did use the PTI Beautiful Blooms 2 #2 die and I still think it works.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Hollie
