Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop



It's so much fun on the 25th of every month to hop around and see what all the creative folks over on the PTI blog have posted. This month Nicole challenged us to "be green" and reuse and recycle portions of our PTI packaging in an earth-friendly way. I love to reuse the shipping boxes on cards and scrapbook pages. I just cut the sizes I need then peel away partial layers to get a multi- textured feel. I really liked the contrast on these Prom pictures - everything else was so "fluffy", I wanted the rugged look and feel of the brown box.





Thanks for stopping by,
Susan
