Sentimental about paper

Before we get started, I'd like to apologize to you all for not being a good commenter on your blogs this past month or so.  It seems we've been running over to my folks' every week - first for their 66th anniversary, then 2 funerals for 2 of my aunts, and then last weekend a wedding reception in the family........endings and beginnings.   I think we're home for awhile now, and I hope to get back into my regular schedule.  Thanks for bearing with me.

The July Diva Dare at Verve Stamps is to make a project using design papers and only Verve sentiments.  Here's my entry, using papers from jillibean soup and the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow set:


supplies: white cardstock, jillibean soup "Blossom Soup" and "Dutch Mustard Soup" and pink and brown dot from girls' paperie, Verve #VS-0144 Bloom & Grow, nesties classic circles, pink and yellow buttons, corner rounder, Martha Stewart doily punch


And I'd also like to enter this into wee Memories CAS challenge.
