April Blog Hop & MIM #63

Hi blog friends!  Hope you are having a fantastic day out there in Cyber Space!

Well it's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, this time for the month of April.
to get more info on how you can participate in the blog hop, visit Nichole Heady's blog.

What it is: 
A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products.   This event allows all of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers do so through their personal blogs.

When it is: 
The actual Blog Hop will take place tomorrow, April 25th, beginning @ 10 am EST 
and run until 11:30pm EST.

The Challenge: 
We are excited to get back to our inspiration challenges for the blog hop each month.  For the month of March we wanted to focus on sunshine and the upcoming spring season.  What better way to do so than with a fresh color scheme of aqua & yellow.  Use the inspiration piece as a jumping point for your color scheme, pattern combinations, overall design or whatever else inspires your creativity.
