More Swaps

Posted: Tuesday, January 17th, 2012 @ 5:14 am in Projects | No Comments »

Here is another swap for the SU Leadership Conference in San Antonio.  This one uses the new Bordering on Romance Stamp Set (Occasions Mini) and a sneak peak of the new DSP and ribbon that is free during Sale-a-bration (starts Jan 24).
