Welcome Blog Hoppers


Welcome to the 



For this blog hop we used classic paper lines from Graphic 45 - Communique or Playtimes Past. 

Here I have used Communique to create a vintage Mailbox as a stationary holder.


The top of the box opens to reveal a section for postage and for Cards. The lower compartment contains envelopes for the cards.



The Front of the box opens to reveal an address book




I was fun to revisit and old favorite again....sort of like getting a letter from an old friend! I will be doing this project later this summer on my Ustream show.


Leave a comment at all of the stops on the hop to be entered in a drawing for a wonderful prize package!



Check out these other awesome stops on the Hop!
