  13. this is fab! i took the miss art's class on this TCR layout. great class! love all the cheese cloth you've colored down at the bottom - haven't tried this yet myself - but one day a layout/mini book is going to call for it.
    i'm personally way behind in my posts - i have about 3 or 4 new books to post and right now i'm working on a nursery project that i can't wait to share with everyone - think its going to be fun!
