Sending Smiles

My second post for today, see below for my Scrap-Mart post.

The challenge this week at Wee Memories is No Pattern Paper.  Are you kidding me?! I love my pattern paper!  Well it is good to be challenged ;)  I was inspired by a seaside photo I saw on Pinterest, I thought I had saved it but didn't and now I can't find it.  Anyhow the cardstock, buttons and stamp are from Papertrey Ink, with a bit of twine from The Twinery.  This is also for the If the Shoe Fits Challenge - Bejewelled Blue.


I also have some fun news to share today too... I am going to be a Guest DT over at The Kraft Journal!  So excited! you can see the news here.
