Hello everyone!! Welcome to the Case Study 4th Anniversary Blog Hop!!!  I am so excited to be a part of the festivities and I hope you all join in and play along!!!! 

I used this image from Pinterst as my inspiration.  I am totally loving the diagonal stripes and florals together!! Way fun!!

I used Betsy Veldman's Make It Market Kit - Beautiful Brushstrokes.  I haven't had a lot of time to stamp lately and it felt so good to get crafty again!!
