soul sisters...

Happy Thursday!

It has been soo dark, dreary and rainy here...I needed to work with some fresh & fun colors:

I seriously dug up some Amy Butler goodness....doesn't it scream spring to you?

I was inspired the {Freshly Made} Sketches #16:



I've been trying to encourage my clean & simple side:)

What's your style?
