A Note From Stacy

Summer to me is freedom to roam. I adore these photos of Addie roaming away from me last August on our "daycation" adventure. I attempted to do the white space thing in an effort to mimic a sense of freedom and room to roam with my design -- hey, I can try can't I?

I know I tend to harp on this, but sorting and storing many of your decorative elements by color is a huge time-saver and gives you a wonderful sense of freedom. I love that I can choose red as my color, grab my color bin and find all kinds of fun stuff to use really fast -- otherwise, I would have never used the "tis the season" ribbon on a summer page!
