This day is just flying by!

So much of North America is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend!  Here in Minnesota it is deer hunting weekend, which mean many of us ladies are enjoying a nice quiet “girls weekend”!

Let’s talk about borders!  Borders are simple, adorable, and functional.  They also add color, and design to any simple page layout.
