Cheers August PTI blog hop


Cheers!  Dinner tastes better with friends, I'll drink to that :)  Welcome to the August PTI blog hop, always a feast for eyes.  The inspiration is a collection of fun fall textures, colors and patterns (see below).  I've got a wine bag and a coordinating card today for the hop.  I've attempted to try the Moxie Fab World Asymmetry Challenge (although I'm not sure, a bit out of my comfort zone).  I used Authentique's Free Bird paper and my new favorite PTI Foodie Fun set, plus some May Arts woven burlap ribbon for the card.  The bag... well while I had visions of creating something like this from the May Arts burlap wired ribbon I've got, I realized life would be a lot easier when I saw the bag at Ben Franklin, so I bought the bag and added the Mat Stack 1 frame and My Favorite's Thing wine glass (out of PTI kraft felt).  Love it...    And not at all card related, I entered my littlest man in a photo contest, if you're out surfing and want to click like on the photo that'd be great, no pressure, but he's cute.
