Hello sweeties and welcome to the blog today! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week here in the US! We enjoyed lots of beautiful family time with our sons home from college for five days … so sad to see them leave on Sunday to head back for the last push over the next two weeks for final exams.
I have lots of inspiration and goodies to share with you today for the Paper Sweeties December *new* product release!
I’m also sharing some goodies I created for The Shabby Tea Room – ‘Terrific Tags’ challenge and The Visions of Sugarplums Designer’s Hop –> click HERE to view my projects for these events! If you’re here looking for my project for this week’s challenge at The Kraft Journal, please click HERE!
So, without further ado, let’s get this party started!
Those sweet blooms in the polka dotted wagon make me smile, how about you? Now, be sure to hop on over and check out what the other Sweeties Teamies have created to share for today’s first day of the December *new* product release:
