Week 158: PRECIOUS


You may have figured it out by now...it's all about that precious white space (a.k.a. open space) here at CASology!  So many things come to mind with this word and we're anxiously waiting to see what you think of this week!

Precious Remembrance Shop is returning as our wonderful sponsor!  This week, they welcomed our very own Judy Marino to their design team!  If you haven't checked out their blog, you'll want to because there is some fantastic inspiration that shows up there each week!  This week's winner will receive the newest stamp set, Blossom!
