    These are tooooooo cute and I can’t wait to use one (or two). I had never made a panini until you started the Panini Happy website and now we have them alot!! I never would have believed that we’d like some of the combinations but we haven’t tried anything yet that we didn’t like.

    I now “like” Petite Lemon on Facebook and have liked Panini Happy for a long time!! 🙂

    All the designs on Petite Lemon are cute. I really like the “on the go” growth chart for busy little boys. As for the alphabet charts, I love them all. I expect lots of little ones will have one of these designs in their rooms. They’re wonderful.
