"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

ELEGANT PICNIC / PTI August Blog Hop...


Good evening! This months PTI blog hop is all about brown paper bags! After thinking for days, and days, and days - I finally had a glimmer of inspiration at the VERY last minute...




I have a huge box of bags in the garage, and of course I started my "picnic plasticware catty" project on the most lopsided one I could find - lol! I used the Damask set to stamp the bottom of the bag with Tuxedo Black Momento. I used the Ric Rac die to cut the top flaps. And I finished of my ribbon and flap with PTI buttons!

Have a great night & thanks for stopping by!
