RemARKable Holiday Blog Tour Day #2

November 20, 2009

Wow! Yesterdays samples were all so wonderful with tons of ideas.  I have another one for you today that is again Very Quick & turns out really really pretty.  This one again uses the Big Shot with the Fancy Favor Die.  Take a look ~ tell me what you think.
