Hi everyone, welcome to my weekly post featuring the gorgeous stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. Today I want to share a layout I made of my little Maria, this is a photo I took of her on her first day of school back in August. I started with solid color patterned papers and created the background designs with some of the Heartfelt Creations' stamps.
