I was hoping someone would demo a real twine wrap on the pins or spools, haven't tried it yet myself but looks even better than I imagined, great job!! Love how huge and beautiful your photos look, too! :)

That hippo set is adorable! Nice idea to have the balloons holding the sentiment circle and your hippo card is beautifully colored and has a wonderful design. Your twine cards are so pretty...I love the real twine on the pins with some stamped twine. The twine sentiment and beautiful buttons are so pretty.
