Follow Your Dreams

Hi everyone! This is my first Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month's challenge was to use tissue. I die cut the paper that came with my order 6 times using a Stampin' Up die. I stamped all the layers with Dawn's new woodgrain background stamp. I'm running late for this blog hop, so I better post this quick.


Thanks for looking!
