I love the paper with the lavender flowers. I wonder if you got that at Hobby Lobby? I will be able to go there very soon (YEA!) so I will look and see if I can find the same paper.

Thanks for sharing. Love, Debbi

What is the trick to trimming them so beautifully with scissors? I finally gave up and bought a scalloped punch! Beautiful as always Kelli, I'm sorry I've been too busy to make anything for this week. But I do love this weekly meme a lot and enjoy coming by for your lovely tutes and for getting inspiration. Have a great week and I'll try to join next Wednesday.
