Serious Girl!

Paper Crafting Tool Tips

My grandkids start back to school today, and for my six year old  grandaughter, Samantha, it is all about the clothes and shoes! She is a "girlie girl" and had a fashion show for her daddy to model all her new clothes (Her soon to be 3 year old sister is not too far behind in the "fashionista" realm!). They both also love to stamp so I'm thinking next weekend we might get together and make this fun lunchbox. Stampin' Up! is not just about handmade cards and scrapbooking!!
