Pink Pink Princess!

Oh how good it feels to be crafty and blogging again!

I'm Back!

Hi there!

It's been awhile since my last post... my hubby & I went on a vacation to visit his family (& cooler weather!).

I don't have a card to share with you for the Tiddly Inks challenge today.. but please check it out here!

In the meantime, I thought I would share this cute picture my 4 year old niece colored. She LOVES to color when she sees me coloring too-  so I printed a few digi images on larger scale for her.

Isn't it FABULOUS?!!  I'm such a proud Auntie :)

I will be back soon with some crafty projects to share!
