iNSD Mini Blog Hop with my Creative Team & a Freebie

Happy iNSD to all you happy scrappers!

Today I have a mini blog hop for you and you can collect lots of goodies from me and my Creative Team along the way.

They are all featuring my latest kit, new in store today at MyMemories called Spring Comes Softly.

Spring Comes Softly

Spring Comes Softly

Spring is very late here in Halifax this year after the harshest of winters – we still have daffodils in bloom and its May!  I keep looking at the cherry trees (we are blessed with 6 in our garden) and they are trying so hard but probably won’t be in bloom for another 5 or 6 days yet.

So in the meantime I have a soft and pretty kit to show you along with some matching wordart and beautiful clusters and papers (yes, modest went out the window as I am so delighted with the way these kits came together!)
