  10. Hi Jeanie. Great job on your first video tutorial! I loved it!
    Now I have to go and buy some chalk inks along with my corner chomper, ha, ha. I've never used that type of ink ... now I've got to have some! Good idea on using the Nestabilities to create a frame too. I learned a lot from this video. A + Chickie!
