  38. Heather who knows why it has taken me so long to get here to your blog...??? You know what it is like sa we are both bogged down with tons of scrappy commitments these days...I know I have commented on this layout before but maybe that was on the DT blog hey...anyway, it is exceptionally beautiful. Totally professionally executed & the photo is wonderful. I love that you have worked with such a minimal palette - that really gives it the WOW factor!
