From Ball provincials to dance school in Edmonton and a trip to Vancouver – I have been nutso busy with family! Sorry for not posting more – I will share some photos in another post! What I am very excited about is this Have a look at the front cover of the Fall 2010 issue of CS! Thank you to Heidi Brand for the goregous photo and to Christy Riopel for the fun design. Christy used a pile of Harmonie tiles to create the tree on this layout – WE LOVE IT!!!!!!!! The fall issue will hit newsstands Sept 01!!!! Can’t wait for you all to see it!
