Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop






The 25th means that its PTI Blog Hop time again.

This months challenge is to create a card or project celebrating a winter holiday other than Christmas.

"There is always a lot of focus on Christmas in our industry this time of year, as that is what the majority
of the population celebrates.  However, this month's blog hop is dedicated to those that celebrate winter
holidays other than Christmas.  Create a project that celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or some other
winter holiday as we embrace everyone's beliefs in a celebration of diversity through paper crafting."


How great is that?  Love that concept!  But, it was challenging for me because I don't have any stamps or accessories for other winter holidays outside of Christmas.  


So, I kept it super simple and used what I had on hand. 




I created a simple Star of David with Scor Tape and glitter. 





I printed out "Shalom" from my printer.  I also noticed that the little extra piece from the center of one of my "Create a Flake 1" die made a tiny little Star of David.  What a fun surprise!  I had to add them to either side of my little label.  


I am really proud of the fact that I completed this challenge without buying anything new.  


Thanks, Nicole, for this challenge.  I have really enjoyed learning about holidays that I had no idea existed until hopping along to other people's blogs.  It was challenging, but fun to participate!
