Wrapping up with Shades of Blue

As you may already know, I'm participating in a Blog Hop this week with Xyron and Kaisercraft. I received beautiful papers and embellies from Kaisercraft's 75 Cents collection and I'm in love! The papers are so pretty and delicate-looking and the shades of blue mixed with light golds, greens and black just really inspired me …
