PTI August Blog Hop

I've been so busy with friends from overseas that I have not blogged for over a week! I am getting withdrawals! I made this card with the PTI The Sweet Life for the August Blog Hop. I've decided to add this card to CASE Study challenge 154 - Casing Jennifer McGuire.

Case Study 154 - Jennifer McGuire

PTI Blog Hop Challenge

I'll also like to share some photos from the weekend of entertaining our overseas guests. We held a dinner party at home with our house guest/chef's family. He catered for the evening with fine dining French cuisine. Since I didn't have to cook, I spent time setting the table and prepared a menu and place settings for our guests using a PTI stamp and die. I made a logo using alphabet die cuts and used this on the menu and made name cards for the Chef and his 'trainee/girlfriend/waitress'.  I swiped the stamp with the ink pad to create a streaked effect (I quite like this distressed and non-fussed look). Each guest also received a framed photo I took of them as a present.  Sorry for the photo heavy blog, hope you enjoy our dinner photos as much as we enjoy eating it!
