Skipping Stones Design Feature Friday!

Happy Friday Peeps!

I'm here today doing the Skipping Stones Design Feature Friday.  The Design Team takes turns featuring a Skipping Stones Design set of her choice.  I decided to highlight:

I don't consider myself a vintage-y chick but there is something about this set that I just love...that bloom is magnificent...full of wonderful detail....the sentiments are perfect and I think this set, like all the Skipping Stones Design sets, is super versatile!

Here's a little project that I put together:
If you know know how much I LOVE color...I love to combine them...I'm totally smitten with the Stampin' Up Timeless Portrait DSP...oy vey.  That Island Indigo/Cherry Cobbler combo is WOW.  Yup, even bought the Designer Fabric from that collection.

Doesn't the Skipping Stones Design Victorian Summer work nicely with it?

you mean the world to me

I love that...for now, I'm keeping this project clean and's going to darin but I'll probably hijack it in a couple weeks and embellie it up:)


wanna see my mobile crafting?
