Days of the Week

Over the past three weeks, Mari Koegelenberg and Sugarplum Paperie have teamed up to bring to you the Days of the Week collection. It's such a lovely collection, and each kit is great on its own or mixed up with the others. :) Here is what I did with the first three weeks' worth of kits.
