Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous Monday! I'm in the Burg as the locals call it.  I'm traveling a few days with my daughter while she works. We were in a hurry to Ed out earlier then expected today because its supposed to snow here again. We are expecting 6 inches tomorrow. To say I'm ready for winter to be over is an understatement! I need the warm sun, bare feet and the house open. Luckily we are on the countdown to a Caribbean vacation!

Luckily I packed my clothes earlier in the morning and didn't forget anything, but as for my crop bag I brought along, it seems I always forget something. This time I brought, stamps, dies, ink, paper...all the essentials one would think. I get started making some barrettes and realize I totally forgot to bringa stamp  block? I had to improvise! So what would you use for a stamp block in. Hotel room? I used this....



My iPhone! Don't you just love the cover. It really is a useful tool. From yelping dinner restaurants to stamping, now how versatile is that!?

And here is my very limited supply PTI blog hop challenge.  This months challenge was to use sequins. I had to google sequins. Of course I google everything, but I wanted to make sure the ones I was using counts as actual sequins.  These little flower sequins have been laying in my little desktop bowl of embellishments forever. I'm so glad I saved them, they worked perfectly for this challenge.




They were so fun to make, and already have a home.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week!  See you Wednesday for my next post.

  21. Joyce,
    Thanks for your nice comments on my blog and I love your idea of finding smaller barrettes for dolls. I'll try Hobby Lobby next time I'm in their area as they have a huge selection of items.
    The crochet flowers I used were from Stampin' Up (wish I could say I made them...not a crochet'er).
    Cheers,
    Nancy
