“First Bloom” is a FTU tagger size scrap kit created by Lady Raven Creations which you can download from Kreative Kreations Korner . It's an exclusive freebie for this store only. Please visit her blog here and hopefully the link to the kit on her blog here will be fixed soon. So sorry for any inconvenience.
Please leave a thank you as it’s a small gesture for hard work given freely.
