Happy Labor Day!!

First off I want to wish you all a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend!! I look forward to spending the weekend with family and getting in some crafting time.
Seems like I have been MIA the last couple of weeks. Over that time I have become a grandma. Little Oliver was born August 26th at 11:52 am. I couldn't be more thrilled.
I am currently finishing up some of the journals I have been working on and hope to get a video up on these latest projects this Sunday.
