    I’m loving Tuesdays too. I love the corner embellishments. I keep forgetting that sometimes you don’t always need to use the whole embellishments!

    Laura said…

    Love the layouts! Am having trouble seeing the video though – and this isn’t the first week that this has happened. There’s a tiny icon in the upper left corner of the topmost “box”. Any suggestions for being able to access it? Many thanks for your help!

    Noell Hyman said…

    Laura, if you’re having trouble with the YouTube videos, my best guess is you need to install the latest flash update.
    You can do that here…
    I hope that’s helps you!
