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.
