PTI January Blog Hop



It's Blog Hop time again! This is the first one I have been able to participate in for ahwile. Here is an excerpt from the PTI website detailing the challenge:

New Year's Resolution

With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge
involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that
might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. If
you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of
each set's sale page on our website, or go to the Previous Countdown page on Nichole's blog where
each set is organized by month of release. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again!

I used the recently released On Ice set for this challenge. Even though this is not an older set, it is the first time I have used it. It is a super cute set and the matching dies make it even more fun to play with. I hope you enjoy the hop!
