LCI Paper mirriSPARKLE

Take a look at the feature I did for LCI Paper! You can also see it here: http://www.lcipaper.com/kb/glitter-paper-bows-allie-elle.html I've been so excited to try LCI's new mirriSPARKLE paper! If you can believe it, it looks even better in person than in pictures! As you know, I LOVE glitter and adding a special touch to my designs, so I was thrilled to experiment with the beautiful paper.
