2 ribbons, lace, string or other trim
3 papers of any type

May Featured Designer – Scraps by Missy

Happy May. Did everyone have fun with iNSD? I know it was sure busy around here. I wanted to hold off on posting this until things calmed down a little. Hopefully the weather is warming up in most places. I live just outside of Charlotte, NC and we are gearing up not only for the Wells Fargo Golf Championship this week, but this is also the beginning of 10 days of NASCAR racing at the speedway. Is the rest of your May as busy as mine looks to be? I would love to hear about your plans as we prepare for SUMMER!
