Lime Green, Lemon Yellow, and Orange!
I am originally from the St. Louis area, and 15 years ago I relocated to Arizona. A friend I went to high school with, also moved. But she went north to Des Moines.

and Glass Glitter in
A tiny, sheer butterfly has found a wonderful place to land, and the soft ribbons and lace
make for the finishing touch!
I can’t wait to see this album in a year and see what gorgeous memories she has stored there!
And I can relive the gardens I miss, too!
Thanks for joining me for this fun project!
