Kim - I'm so happy that you are getting your computer. You will love it. I love mine (the only computer I've ever had that I've loved) so much, I decided I'm going to now get the IPhone. You will just love yours. The video is fascinating. I wish so much I could take the class now, but I will definitely take it next summer, so please don't stop offering it. Thanks for all you do. You have helped so many of us. We love you!

Great job, Kim....thank-you.

November 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDoreen

thanks so much for this lovely texture!
I'm back from my enforced absence due to moving and apart from being in chaos thanks to the previous owner leaving the place in a state and finding out 2 days before we moved that the whole house needed rewiring, I'm slowly starting to get back into my scrapping!!
I'd love to take your class(es) but just haven't enough time atm, as there's so much to do on the house (which we didn't know about), as well as the day job, LOL! Maybe next year things will quieten down!!
Oh and btw I made something with warm grunge :)

Thanks for sharing so much!
