Welcome Back to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at the my newest creation for Heartfelt Creations.  This week I made a layout featuring some of the February new releases.  I love many different looks you can get from these stamps and dies.  These pages are a tribute to my wonderful mother in law that passed away last May.  It was a terrible lost for our whole family and we miss her.  We are planning a special time to celebrate her life with family and friends as a special way to remember.
