Spring Fling Blog Hop Logo

Welcome to the first MemoryWorks TeamWorks Blog Hop of the year and to my blog! Sorry for posting this a little late. I was putting the finishing touches on my picture frames. And I had to take a quick quiz for one of my classes. But here I am. I hope everyone is enjoying the blog hop so far. My projects are all made using BasicGrey's new Plumeria Collection. I love the colors and patterns. They work great with old sepia and b&w photos as you will see. What better way to find this out than to check out my projects using this new collection. So without further ado.............
