Project Life

Have you heard of Project Life??  I am so excited about this!  It’s a simplified way of scrapbooking, but still has major style and a touch of handmade.  I had heard about Project Life from other blogs, but was reminded when I saw Heather Bailey instagram a comment about the edition that she designed.  Say […]

4th of July Recipe::Potato Salad
