Heather - your layouts are so outstanding & this one is no exception - absolutely fabulous.  Well done.  There are so many elements, layers & embellishments - do not know where to start - so gorgeous - each & every piece.  The stitching, the pink brads, the stamping & the clusters. I am blown away.

Your LO was the reason that I purchased the Cottage Cutz Leafy Foliage die for the web site

Bye for now
