Hi, There, Stampers! This was supposed to be my last Halloween project for this week of celebrating the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper set. You can imagine how surprised I was when I got back to work this Monday morning and found it hadn't yet appeared.

But it was still supposed to be a … [Read more...] about A “No Layer” Challenge
