I saw a layout similar to this in the newest issue of the Stampin' Up demonstrator magazine I get each month and decided to try it out. Of course once I got started I changed some things, but I really like how it turned out. I used one of my favorite sets "Crazy for Cupcakes" as I'm using this for one of my customers' birthday. Starting tomorrow I will only be working on samples for my May workshops, so you will be seeing a lot of Walk in the Park DSP and Great Friend/Summer Love Stamps and Rub ons. I also will be going to Jolene's first workshop tomorrow, so I will post our make-and-take too :)
