BLOGGERS CHALLENGE - INSPIRATION


Hello! Have you ever had a day when things were NOT coming together as you hoped? I tried stamping yesterday and everything I made was just not coming together...the colors were wrong, cardstock was wrong...so I just gave up. LOL This morning I had the same problem until I sent an e-mail to my friend, Holly and she helped me pull it all together! Thank Goodness for friends! :)

The past few weeks, I have been busy working on future projects and some new exciting things! I can't wait to share with you...BUT you have to wait. :) Tomorrows post will reveal some NEW and EXCITING news for me and Monday, I hope you will return for the Creative Cuts and More's Christmas in July Blog Hop!
