Tonight we are excited to present the BIG monthly Blog Hop that Papertrey Ink hosts for all of it's talented customers to show off their skills! We are doing things a bit different again this month with the link list being hosted here on my blog at 8pm EST with a Mister Linky list, rather than a thread on our forum for that purpose. But not to worry, the contest for non-participants as well as all the chit chat will still be going on over in our forum in the designated thread. I hope that I will see many of your familiar faces over here tonight! I look forward to seeing all of your creativity!

Who All of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers through their personal blogs.

In case you were wondering, I am away on vacation right now enjoying time with my family. I thought I would share a few photos of some highlights of the trip so far!

Hershey garden 
We made a stop in Hershey, Pennsylvania at the Hershey Gardens.  All of the roses were blooming and the weather happened to be spectacular the day that we stopped by.

A photo of Hannah outside of the park.

Owen enjoying a little down time.

Ethan at Hershey's Chocolate world after filling his toolbox with Hershey Kisses!  Isn't he so cute in his little hard hat.

Oh & bobcat 
Owen & Hannah shaking hands with the bobcat from the zoo.


And here the kids are with David on one of the rides, together on Father's Day.  They had such a good time!  We are in Maine now and enjoying the cool weather.  I hope to update you with more pictures a bit later on in the week!

    Wonderful pictures, Nichole… glad to hear you and the family are having a wonderful, RESTFUL time…you deserve it. 🙂

    Looking at Ethan’s huge ol’ grin, I can’t say I wouldn’t be sharing something similar if I was in a chocolate world. 🙂

    It’d be really nice if your design team participated in the blog hop. And if nothing else, if you and they actually participated in the hop in the way of going to the individual blogs and commenting and seeing what people are doing with the products that they have purchased from you.

    Oh how I wish I had been at Hershey that day! I live 40 minutes away and would have just died seeing you there! You are THE stamping goddess and my idol and it would have been one of the best things to ever happen to me! 🙂 I hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation as much as you all look like you enjoyed Hershey!

    You have the most beautiful family! It’s good to see you having some down time. The photos are magnificent. TFS.

    P.S. Hershey, PA??? You’re that close to me. Get on I-70 West, continue to Columbus, OH. Exit at I-270 North, exit at Main Steet West to Whitehall, LOL.
