create something to bring a smile to someone else and hope you enjoy
creating to your hearts content with some of my doodles.. ~Laurie

Kathie, I love the vibrant, rich colors you have used for your cornflower. Your papers are perfect with it. I hope things went well for your son. It is always hard to let them go off on their own. I hope your faired through the storm that you had and that all is well. My daughter in New York just got another 20 plus inches of snow this last week.
