I ♥ New Orleans

Hey, everyone! There is a new challenge posted at Just C & S today. The prompt is to scrap your zip code. I decided to scrap my zip code from college...the good 'ol 70118 that is New Orleans, Louisiana! It was so much fun digging through my old photos from college, although I certainly did have a lot of different hair colors throughout those 4 years...
Thanks for popping by!
