Ugly Sweater Photo Backdrop Preview

Welcome back friends! Today I’m giving you a sneak peek of the photo backdrop I designed for our Ugly Sweater Party. I’m saving the grand reveal until after the party because I’m a total tease! Sorry, not sorry. You know the only thing I love more than a theme, is a good deal. For this…
