Papertrey April BLOG HOP Challenge

Welcome to my blog! Today I am participating in the April Papertrey Blog Hop you can find here:

We were challenged to design on an angle. Here's what I came up with:

I also incorporated this weeks' MIM by using perfect pearls. This was so much fun and I want to thank Nichole for making me use product that I haven't in some time!!

I started with black CS and stamped my background(It's Official) with fresh snow ink and used Perfect Pearl PP. I then did the gold and the apples by first stamping them with versamark ink in order to remove the PP that was already on the paper. I restamped them again to ensure good coverage of the new color of PP which was Forever Red(apples) and Perfect Gold(A+).

I then die cut the spiral notebook page and ripped off the bottom. Used Teacher's Apple for my sentiment since Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up. Inked the page with some Pure Poppy and a little black ink. Rolled up a small piece of white scrap paper which I adhered to the silver ribbon that mimics the chalk tray. I then cut out a small piece of felt and a small piece of kraft paper to make the eraser.  To finish it off I had to add the gold star(that looks black) because I can remember trying so hard in school to get a gold star and what a feeling when I did!! I still get all warm and fuzzy thinking about those stars!!

Thanks for stopping and have fun today hopping around. I hope to fit it in a bit later!
