  6. Laura,
    May i ask the sizes of the envlopes you used in your class, just so i can have them written somewhere so i can go and get the right sized envelopes. This has kicked off my creative mojo, which had gone on a vacation, and i am ITCHING to get back into paper crafting!!
    Big fan of your work, thankyou for everything you do in sharing your creative skills!!
