Gretchen & Junktique...........I actually went to Bellingham, Washington yesterday to replenish my word supply..........I'm always telling people we don't have as great as choices for merchandise in Canada as they do in America! Try your local scrapbooking stores as they seem to be the best bet.
Thanks again all!

MimiToria writes: Janis - equisite post! Love everything about it. Great ideas.
We just don't seem to be ablet of find great words/letters like you find in Canada. Love your wording you use so often. It just adds so much.
Great job, girlfriend!
