Welcome to 

Have we got a hop challenge for you today. Take the letters LEAP and create any paper crafting project; a card, a scrapbook layout, a journal page, etc. Here is the trick....whatever you make must use L-E-A-P in it somewhere.For example:A lavender (L) card with embossing (E) and angled (A) with prills (P).Get it.
