I follow Jill continuously and have been a long time admirer of her work. This project is another winner and I would love to win these products to play with and perhaps create a class out of it at a stamp shop where I work. I help create classes for our store and I think these products and this technique would make a great class. It's nice to bring new products and techniques into the store to keep our customer base interested and entertained at the same time. This looks like a sure winner! Great Job Again Jill - - - -Thank You Much!
