One thought on “Three Ways to Use Kit #17 in Your Happy Album

  1. I wish you did more with your Happy Albums. They are such a great size. I love the planner pages but I wish they had more. I was very disappointed when you got rid of the happy album kits. I think I bought three sets of all 24. Anyway, that’s my two cents.
