What a weekend . . .

Such a wonderful gathering of artful women at

Laura Denison's Follow the Paper Trail to St. Louis.


There were 57 Paper Doodles in attendance.

Laura wanted to teach 50 people total but didn't want to leave anyone out

so . . . we were able to add a few more.

Upcoming Laura Denison weekend workshops include:

2016: Las Vegas Nevada and Salem Massachusetts

2017: Anchorage Alaska (Alyeska Resort)


one more that we're keeping a secret!

In the meantime, I'm trying to get samples complete

for upcoming workshops.

The brand new Graphic 45 papers are supposed to be delivered next week!

I can't wait to get my hands on boxes and boxes of goodness.

So far I have these samples going (although not complete):
