HI again, Cathryn. Just wanted to say thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I thought I had followed you when I was here during the hop but it appears I failed to do that. Well, I'm a follower now for sure! I really do love this box and plan to try to make one myself when I get a little free time.

Thanks again and happy crafting!
