Hello Lovelies!

Today is such a gloomy day where I live.  Rain, rain, and more rain. boo...  I don*t mind a little sprinkle, but it*s pretty bad when you have to turn on a light during the day because of the lack of sunshine.  To brighten my day and maybe yours, I decided to share my summer theme letter I just finished to one of my sweet pen pals across the world.  I absolutely love how it turned out.  This baby is packed full of character and goodies, just the way I like it.  :) 

The majority of this pen pal book is created from one of my all time favorite paper lines: Good Day Sunshine by Simple Stories.  The best part of this paper pad is that Hobby Lobby carries it.  Yay!  It retails at $19.99,  don*t forget the weekly 40% coupon.  The grand total: $12 plus tax.  I think that*s an amazing price for such versatile paper.  Oh... by the way... Hobby Lobby has new washi tape in.  I picked up the cutest deer silhouette and gold foil triangle washi.  LOVE Love love...

I got a little side tracked, washi will do that to a person, lol.  Anyway, this is my pen pal letter in all its glory.  If you would like to know how I made it step by step, I*m in the process of editing a tutorial for my youtube channel.  I would love for you to check it out.  :)   Thank you for stopping, please leave a comment I enjoy reading them. 

Hugs, Meg!
