March Joyful Stars Blog Hop

If you are hopping from Helen at helengullett.com, then you are on the right path.  I apologize that my post is not ready on time.  My hubby was out of town this week and I came down with the stomach bug.  Trying to play catch up means that I am still running behind.  Please continue hopping to my friend Jolene Barron at  jolenespapertrail.blogspot.com to see what treasure she has created.  I will try to post later.  Thanks for stopping by.
