Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (O)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter O. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their O element will be featured in their post.  If you came from Catherine Nowak then you’re on the right track!10178117_10208292254205571_4929240357548789413_n

I had a hard time coming up with something for the letter O, but then it hit me…Ornate Blossoms!!!  I love this set of stamps and thin cuts!  They are so fun to color.  I had a bunch of these already colored and matched them up with some scraps I had to make these layouts.  The white strip under the 4×4 photo is the flip flap, I just have it laying on the page for the picture.  I will attach it to the page protector.
