    Rachelle you have been extremely creative. You made the most fabulous layouts. The first one has a gorgeous texture and awesome colors. The Wedding layout is so lovely too. And the layout with purple embellishment is awesome. I love what you shared.
    Thank you also for the inspirational tutorial. What a fantastic idea to create the pretty flowers the way you did. They look just wonderful.
    You are such a talented artist. Thank you for sharing your art.
    Hugs from Monica… Spain
