Today’s How To-sday post comes from the fabulous Charity Hotrum.  I have admired her style for quite some time now.  I even got to meet her in person at the Mall of America last year.  Charity and Judy took one of the classes I taught.  Hanging out with them was definitely a highlight from my trip!

  • 3 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock
