Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge + GS39

It's all about FELT tonight on the blog hop with Papertrey Ink!  I love felt!  It's a very forgiving fabric and it's easy to use.  Tonight I'm using it to create my own felt embellishment inspired by this cute DP from October Afternoon!
The layout is inspired by the sketch over at Get Sketchy.  I turned the sketch on it's side and got to it.


I grabbed three different school oriented papers (college rule, alphabet printing practice and vintage dictionary) from around the house plus a great piece of canvas measuring tape I found at a local secondhand shop.  These were combined with the fabulous new Dotty Biscotti paper from PTI along with a sentiment from Damask Designs.  Add it all together with my handmade felt apple and I've got a pile of thank yous for my daughter's kindergarten teachers! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  It's been forever and a day since I was able to play on blog hop night.  I'm so glad to be back!  See you all on the hop!
