My Little Shoebox's....Sunday Market.

I mentioned yesterday I was messing around with my blog a bit. What do you think? I'm still working with the header to get it just right...the digital thing is just not me! That's why I paper scrap. So anyone with an eye for digital, please give me some advice. I ready to turn it over to the professionals :)

Last month I worked with My Little Shoebox's Sunday Market and today I can share my layouts:




Hope you have a great weekend! If you are watching the Super Bowl...cheer on our Green Bay Packers! Go Pack Go!!!!!!
