    What a beautiful project!
    I loved Michelle’s banner for the release (was it last month?) and think it makes the perfect project to re-create for MIM. Hope I can get time to try it. Such fun!

    Oh my goodness Michelle, there’s so many things I love about your projects today! First off , the color palatte… The dark indigo looks amazing with the raspberry fizz and scarlet jewel berries, poinsettias and greens. It’s also such a clever use of that file tab to create a hanger for your banner panels. pure genius and totally inspirational!!
