If you missed yesterday, please be sure to CLICK HERE and go to yesterday’s post. Yesterday’s line up was full of some super amazing projects!

My project today was inspired by the Classic love song by the timeless band...”Chicago”  called “Your My Inspiration”

My project is as large as a scrapbook page, but it is actually part of a banner I am working on for my brother’s wedding. They are having a beach-tropical themed wedding with the “Tiffany Blue” color.
