Hello crafters,

Happy International Women’s Day! Today we would like to share with you a layout put together by the talented Amy Peterman!

Amy put this layout together to showcase two very special young women, her beautiful daughters – Kate and Josie!  This  layout provides the perfect backdrop to spotlight  those you adore and express gratitude for having them in your life. We hope you enjoy the tutorial!

For this layout Amy has chosen  to use the Grace Taylor, Blossom collection currently available in Big W Australia and  the Warehouse Stationery  in NZ.

Journalling: "What did I do to receive two beautiful girls like you? I Love you
