  6. I like how you included the Paper Smooches stamps. Great idea and appropriate.

    1. I had the idea of adding the Paper Smooches stamps and made a couple of the easels with the paint before I came up with one that I liked. Most of the first tries had the 'A' in 'KCAI' smooshed together that you could not see the white space that is inside the letter 'A.'
