And now for my project!


It is so much fun to take a look back at all the fun toys we had as kids!!! And my wooden spinning top with the string is from a time even before my generation. Haha!!! Let me know in the comments if any of you had one of these!!! I was so glad to find the background paper and the wood paper that I used for my top in my stash. It is from the Echo Park This & That 6x6 paper pad. The Kawaii Spinning Top is from SVG Cutting Files and you can find it here. From Jaded Blossom, I used the Card Mat Dies, Mini Tag Dies 2, and the Encouragement stamp set.


Next up is Cindy!!!

Did you lose your way?

Blessings,
