Learn Something New Every Day..

Like today, for example, I was playing along in a couple of challenges that are asking us to use Red and White this week, in honor of St. George's Day in England. I had no idea what St. George's Day was about so I looked it up this morning and found out that St. George is England's Patron Saint and that St. George's Day is England's National Day. Now I know. The article I read also said that St. George is always depicted with a dragon so now I wish I would have used one of my Dustin Pike Dragon images...but, maybe next year. :)
The image I did use is from Paper Cupcakes and it's called "You Melt my Heart". I just won it yesterday so I was excited to use it.
