PP394 - A Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Laurie

Hi everyone! Laurie here and I am your hostess for the Clean and Simple BLOOMS challenge this week. I chose blooms as I am SO anxious for all the flowers to start blooming here up north.

Remember in addition to the theme of "blooms", this week is a Clean-and-Simple (CAS) challenge!  What do we mean by CAS?
  • Minimal layers and embellishments

  • Simple and uncluttered
