  25. Anne - I echo the comments of the other people on here, Graphic 45 would be lucky to have you on their design team. It was your blog that got me into buying their paper in the first place, as it always seemed to me to be too expensive and I couldnt work out what to do with it. The Tropical travelogue mini was the first one of your tutorials I worked through and I am now fully hooked. Good luck (not that you need it, you are very talented!)
