PTI October Blog Hop

For this month's blog hop, I decided to do an Advent Calendar. I've never done one before and it was SO much fun! I absolutely loved playing with the Holiday Button Bits set. The Holiday mix Vintage buttons are just so lovely. I really enjoyed going through all of the buttons and finding just the perfect color and size.

I also used some images from the Anniversary set. The stars and the mug both spoke "holiday" to me. I went with a color combo that used the buttons and had to add some hot pink, my daughter's favorite color. Here are some photos:
