National Scrapbooking Month - Taste of Summer Blog Hop

Hello & Welcome!  Thank you for joining us on our National Scrapbooking Blog Hop!  I hope you enjoy the artwork I have created.  I know you will definitely find inspiration by all of the beautiful artwork you will see featured here today!  We will be featuring the May Special called Taste of Summer.

If you have come here from Melissa Robinson's Blog ~ My Heartfelt Sentimentsyou are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week at our elementary schools and our PTA does many nice things for our teachers this week and all year long.  It is fun to do special things for the teachers that have such a positive influence on our children!  I donated a small CTMH organizer box packed full of handmade greeting cards as my little business door prize donation, but they were still in need of more door prizes, so I bought this water bottle in purple, our school color and a gift card to go with it.  When looking at the water bottle, I knew just which paper from the Taste of Summer paper packet I should use to make the Gift Card Holder Card to attach to the water bottle.  The oh so pretty lemon paper with the cute little purple & white flowers.  Of course my thought process was, they could use the attached gift card for 2 or 3 of their lunches and maybe get lemonade as their drink!  (The paper inspired that thought ;o)

I made the gift card holder using the Artiste cartridge.   Doesn't the paper match perfectly?!!
I am working on a layout using this paper packet also, I will share it with you soon!
