Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop!!!



Tonight is the Papertrey Ink May blog hop! So much fun to see everyone's creations! There's a simple card I have in mind I'm going to try to complete soon that fits this months challenge as well, but for now, this is the challenge and my take on it!


May Blog Hop

Spring and summer tend to be the most colorful out of the four seasons. One color in particular that evokes the warmer weather is yellow!!! Your challenge this month is to use this trendsetting color to the best of it's potential! You can use it in small pieces as an accent or as the main color. Experiment & play, discovering new color combos that perhaps you hadn't thought of before. No matter what, just have fun and enjoy the feeling of happiness that this cheerful color evokes


So for my project I worked on a goodie box for my son's 2 bus drivers as an end of the year gift. I used the new lunchbox template from Lauren as my base.
I used punches for the windows and wheels and used scor-tape to put acetate behind the window openings. I used my label-maker to put the school listing on the side of the bus.
This is my first attempt, so I'm thinking of ways to fancy it up even more, I'm thinking i'll probably do some work with some background PTI stamp sets for my next attempt. I'm thinking i'll also add black circles to the front of the bus with large round clear gems to simulate headlights.
Thanks for stopping!
Hugs- Kelly
