I don't scrapbook,but I LOVE this piece by PunkyJane on Etsy.

Right now she is having a sale on this item,so I don't expect it to last long!Especially because she is offering a percentage of the proceeds from her shop to help BeadsofGlass who has cancer;which has spread to her brain.

Please be sure to visit her shop and help BeadsofGlass in this difficult time.

We need to find a cure for cancer!
