Tonights PTI Blog Hop

Since we just finished up our 3rd Anniversary Festivities, we thought we would do something extra
special for this month's Blog Hop!  Design Team Appreciation Day!  Your challenge is to go through the
Design Team gallery or any of the Design Team Members' blogs and find a project that is especially
inspirational to you!  Then recreate the project with your own spin, making it unique!  Be sure to share a
link and photo of the original project that inspired you!  And you can also use this opportunity to thank
the team for all their contributions this past year!  I know they inspire ME daily and I never seem to thank
them enough!  We look forward to seeing your projects!


My inspiration came from the idea of giving some crafty goodness to some of my friend for their Birthdays this month.  Dawn McVey had a cute idea to give little buttons made into match packs as well as I loved the coloring of her flowers so make sure to stop by her blog and leave her some love.   

A few years ago I made an advent box with match boxes and thought it would be fun to turn it into an embellishment center for some pre threaded buttons.   I made it much smaller with only 8 match boxes, but it turned out way cute!
