So much inspiration in one spot! I loved watching the video’s. I really glad for the addition of Amber Rain Davis and Jacyee. Both are such a great addition to Altenew’s team! I loved Jacyee’s flowers with the gold embossed foliage. Such pretty layouts! Ashlea online colouring was amazing to watch! But now I am going to be late for work… so I better stop watching and get out the door! I will have to visit this blog post when I have more time.
