Something special to share - and a GIVE AWAY with paper smooches

Don't you just love giveaways?
A few days ago my sweet and talented friend Kim ask me to help guest this month. 
I of course said "heck yeah!"
Kim and I go way back and I have looked up to her from day one. This is because she is one of the hardest workers in our crafty world. When I heard she was starting Paper Smooches, I had tears of joy for her. I knew the stamps would be a big hit, because she is so amazing!

When my stamps came in the mail, they were wrapped with such love. A sweet string tied with a bow.
I LOVED this new set and got right to work.
I decided a little spring garden would best for my layout's theme.
Just look at the tiny bee!
