So here is the list of blogs, but before you start hopping, I have a layout to share below.
Have fun!

One of my favorite activities is going to thrift and antiques shops. When I saw this Jenni Bowlin Photo Freedom collection, the designs made me think of these little shops.  I chose to use some photos of my family and friends when we went shopping on Main Street  in Port Lavaca, Texas. I actually bought a jar of vintage buttons and shell buttons that I have added to my layout by attaching them to the button cards along with a couple of the sticker buttons.
