  1. Oh so pretty! I love this paper pack. I have a full sheet of each left and don't want to waste them so I have been hoarding them! This is so silly, maybe today I will pull them out and CASE away! I love the way you matted these. I don't have that butterfly die but I have plenty of other stuff I could use and I think I have the little tiny butterfly die that came out several years ago. What am I afraid of, it's just paper!

    1. Oh you have to use these papers. They are just SOO pretty not to have them out and use them! My BFF is a "paper ho" as her t-shirt says. I tell her the "ho" is for "horder"! LOL By the way, I found that shirt for her and instantly knew it was HER!

    2. Too funny! I think I would have to be selective on when and where I wore the shirt though!

    3. You wear it any time you attend a scrapbooking event or card making party! LOL

  2. Donna, Thanks for the ideas for using up DSP we like but that just sits on the shelf!!! Glenda J

    1. Glenda, I know how hard it is use sometimes, but really, isn't that's what it's for? There are times when I just can't open it and use it and then I tell myself, WHY!! It's beautiful, share it! :)
