One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

PTI June Blog Hop

I just have to say that I had every intention of posting this for the Blog Hop, but being on vacation and having a house full of family, it totally slipped my mind.  I just remembered tonight, so thought I would post it now anyway, since it was all done!
Also, my granddaughter Ellie will be playing tomorrow for the CHAMPIONSHIP  in the 14 and under Volleyball Tournament in Phoenix AZ.  There are 140 teams in her age division, so to be first or second is a great accomplishment!
Goodnight friends!

 I can't believe the JUNE BLOG HOP is upon us!
I used the striped vellum pattern paper and embossed my flowers using some zing ep.
Sorry for the not very clear picture!
Blog hop inspiration 
Here is the inspiration piece!  I placed my vellum over smokey shadow card stock, added my sentiment on a rustic white tag to get the cream color.  Those are such cute little shoes, I can just imagine a sweet little thing wearing these shoes and dancing and twirling around!

stamps:  Mum's the Word, Petite Pots (sentiment)
