Saturday Crafty Links and Meet Walter

 Willow Designs in the UK were the featured paper pack freebie in one of my summer issues of "papercraft essentials" magazine.  I love these kits and always make something with them.  This time I made a few buttons.

I am watching the weather reports all weekend like most people.  I am sending positive wishes that the East Coast does not sustain too much damage this weekend.
