New Stuff in the Shop!

Gettin’ Our Tattoo On!

It’s time for another fun Silhouette promotion!! When I found out the promotion this month is Tattoo Paper – I wasn’t sure how much I’d use it. I don’t have little ones that like temporary tattoos. (Instead I have one making noises about interest in a REAL one. Huh. But…
