Good Morning friends!  Thank you for all the well wishes for my daughter.  She is back in action and back to school :)

As I sat down to get crafty while my kids were in school, I was inspired by the current challenge over at Digi Darla's which is "Happiness Is".  Darla is offering a freebie for you to play along with and it is oh so cute!  To find out the challenge rules and grab your freebie, click here.

I was so happy because I actually used my cropadile for something other than punching holes, lol.  I had thrown out the instruction book when I first bought it years ago, and thanks to some You Tube vids, I was able to set some eyelets in the corners (although I'm gonna need some more practice for sure!)  The adorable sentiment I used is from TLC's new set, Play On Words, which you can find in the TLC store by clicking here!   Both the image and sentiment together reminds me of the happiness and butterflies that only new love can bring.

Hoping you each have a fabulous day :)
