  1. Sweet sneak peek, Debbie!! Looking forward to playing along with you on the new challenge blog!!

  2. Ha! Finally someone who wants me to use old stamps! I have tons and tons of old stamps, though I do not have the set in your preview (though I know the name of the set has something “seaside”-ish in it). Thanks for sharing the retro-challenge!

  3. Bridget, I hope you will play along! I am looking at my retired stash in a whole different light now. What a great way to get them out again and enjoy them – this time with all new embellishments!
