Hello everyone and welcome to the C'est Magnifique Blog Hop!! Spring is definitely in the air and what better way to celebrate its arrival than with the reveal of a kit filled with as much freshness and beauty as the season itself? We are offering so many opportunities to win some truly amazing prizes, and have stops along the way that include our participating manufacturers (Les Papiers de Pandore, Webster's Pages, and Blue Fern Studios), our own sketch designer Michele Singh, and of course our incredible design team who have created plenty of inspiration to keep you moving through the hop!
