DT Call at Crop Addict!

Just wanted to mention that Crop Addict is having a Design Team call right now. It ends May 31 so if you want a chance to play with Debbie's kits, you need to hurry!!! You can find all the info you need here. I can't believe this is the first time I thought of mentioning this to you. Sorry!

Sorry it's taken me so long to get the rest of the instructions to you! It's been one busy month!!! I got to review some fun things from Serendipity and I also got to play with the manufacturer kit from Crop Addict...I LOVE that kit! I can't wait to show you the projects I did with both of those.
