Stampin' Addicts Retiring Stamp Set Blog Hop
Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts official good-bye party, the Retiring Stamp Sets Blog Hop! Have you scoured through the retiring list? I recommend you mark up your catalog with all the retiring sets, and by all means, grab those talking to you before they are gone! If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Sara's blog featuring the Elements of Style. Weren't her projects adorable?
Today I'm featuring the stamp set Forever Young. This set has a real Victorian, vintage feel. The whimsy of the tree and swing silhouette image really drew me to this set, so the first projects I have to share include the obvious horizon focal points.
