Another Snow Day and a PTI Anniversary Challenge

Here on LI, NY we are in the midst of another snow storm -- they say it should change to rain - but it is coming down very heavily right now. They had predicted about 3 inches for my area -- we are up to about 6 -- ummm, yeah, ok -- Luckily for me, the school district I work at choose to close today - many others did not. 
So I get to play today -- PJ's, Coffee, and Cards -- what could be cozier? 
At Paper Trey Ink, they are celebrating their 7th anniversary.  Today's Challenge is to introduce Building Blocks . So the challenge is to go to 9 designers and randomly select a "building block" from the 6 choices.  I thought about "cheating" and just selecting what I want (as Nichole says, if you don't have something, you can select something else).  But as a hoarder  collector, I pretty much have everything on everyone's list. 
So here is what I did truly randomly roll:
  • Ashely =  # 5 color Hawaiian Shores
  • Betsy = #4 color Sweet Blush
  • Cristina = #6 color Aqua Mist
  • Danielle = #5 neutral Soft Stone
  • Dawn  = #2 Sketch
  • Erin = #5 occasion - friends
  • Heather = # 1 technique misting (I misted the "friend" banner with a glimmer mist - but it doesn't show up in the photo)
  • Laura = # 3 embellishment buttons
  • Melissa - #6 fiber - seam binding
The stamps are Mendhi Medallions and the paper are all from Paper Trey. 
I added the Aqua Mist color to the Medallions with color pencil. So this can also go into Addicted to Stamps Challenge which is to "Make your Mark" with markers, pencils, crayons, etc.
Over at  Crafty Sentiments - Buttons and Bows Challenge - this will fit for that too.
Buttons and Bows is also the challenge at My Time to Craft
And at Totally Gorguss the theme is "Sentiment as the Main Focus"
Here is a photo of a snow-covered tree in my front yard, and a view of my neighborhood.  I do like to see photos of other neighborhoods around the country, and around the area.  It is pretty, but heavy-to-shovel snow. 
Hope you are having a good, nice-weather day.
Thank you for looking, for your comments, and for following!
