Here's a close up of the scalloped border die -- it's 6" long, which makes me so happy!

So, here are the blog hop details:

There are two $25 Pretty Pink Posh Gift Certificates up for grabs.
The winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop.
Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PDT on 6/8/2014.
Winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog.
