PP100 and Reason to Smile Sneak Peek

Greetings, Stampers! Did you miss me? I was away for a few days visiting family and celebrating my Mom's birthday. Since my siblings and I all live in different states, it was a treat for Mom to see us all together.

Anyhow, it is good to be back, and today I have a project to share with you to help celebrate The Paper Players 100th Challenge Celebration. Their challenge this week is to choose any of their past challenges. What fun!

I chose one of my favorite previous Paper Players challenges, which was a color challenge. I love pinks and greens together and love this color combo. Though two of the colors in this combination are recently retired, most of the products I used are still current, and the pink and green can be replaced with similar current colors if you would like to re-create this project.

This project features a special stamp set called Reason to Smile. This stamp set is offered only during a special promotion which lasts from July 1 - July 31. The best part about this promotion is that this stamp set is only $5 with any $50 purchase. Wow! (Limit one per customer.) The greeting from the new Sweet Essentials Stamp Set coordinates perfectly with the image.
