Welcome to my blog! I had started a new blog to encompass my husband's and my journeys, but did not like the platform we were using, so I have reactivated this blog. I am currently pursuing my Master's of Education, so I will not be posting much, but will display the few crafts I have been able to complete. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you find something to inspire you!

6X6 Vintage Digital Printable Scrapbook Paper- "Tracy Keys" - Sepia

I really like to use Tsunami Rose Printables!!  The Vintage papers she designs are so pretty and are very versatile!!  The convenience of being able to print out the exact paper I want whenever I need it is so nice!  It really helps if you are making matching cards and need multiple copies of a certain paper!
