A recipe for fun...

...that's the challenge over at Aimes fab blog Passion for Papertrey this week.

The challenge is : a dollop of colour (3 colours plus neutrals if required eg black/white)
a sprinkle of buttons (2 buttons)
a pinch of ribbon (1 ribbon)

I have chosen green, navy blue and grey. I know grey is a neutral but I hope I still qualify as I've used white as well.


This is the first time I've used this frame from Papertrey Ink's Mat Stack 3 collection. Ideally you need a 3/4" circle punch for the circle to fit inside the frame, but I didn't have one, although I've since found out SU do one. Instead I used a Nestie die from the standard small circle set and found that it fitted perfectly.


I've used the lovely leafy stamp from PTI's With Sympathy set yet again, it creates such a fab background. and just seems to go with everything.


And finally a close up of the Mat stack frame, I really love this design, it creates a lovely focal point.


Right, I'm off to enter into the challenge and then cram as much as I can into my weekend. I have a few days off next week, and am soo looking forward to it especially as I have more PTI stuff being shipped to me as I write this and am hoping for it to arrive when I'm off!

Have a great weekend.
