8 Days a Week

Yes, I do love them 8 Days a Week!  I received this metal 8 from 7 Gypsies in a monthly kit a couple of years ago & held onto it because I knew something great would pop up!  Well it did... Amber challenged the Crop Chocolate Design Team (yep, I'm one of them!) to use a song as inspiration for our January projects... how perfect it that?!

Here's a link to my video to create this page: Crop Chocolate's The Crop, please feel free to lift away!
