    Laurie’s floral arrangement is much prettier than her inspiration image. Give Love is beautifully showcased by Michelle with the die cut behind the heart. Any chance you’re willing to share with us how many participate weekly by answering the Design Team Tips Contest and the Instagram Challenge? Just curious! 😊
