Spring Fling with Sassafras Lass

Today is a very special Sunday so we'd like to  wish you all a good and festive start to your week !

Spring has definitely sprung worldwide, but truth be told here in the UAE we can safely say that summer  has officially started ! The temperature has risen and the days are becoming longer - so yes indeed, the heat is on!

For sure, most of us has already taken advantage of this outdoorsy weather especially on the previous weeks' Spring break , and has got quite a gigabyte's worth of photos to prove it. So for those of you who are looking for a paper collection that is as breezy, light and refreshing as your recent holiday snaps, why not consider our Sassafras Lass CHA 2011 release ?

Take a look and see our Design Team members' latest creative inspiration using them!
