Paperytrey Ink May Blog Hop


Happy Monday again...my intent was to not play along, just no Mojo and my desk, well it has been a huge mess for the last few weeks. So I was thinking that maybe the reason I had no mojo was due to the major mess...so I decided it was time to clean it off and I even made a card! It is for this month's PTI Blog Hop. Things still need to be organized and put back in their proper places and I will get to that once school is out and I only have 7 more days!!! Getting ready to do a little happy dance!
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...I am still working on getting my commenting caught up so thank you so much for your understanding.  Enjoy your week!
