I love your beautiful creation,
but do not have photoshop or other editing programs...I simply can`t find time for that, as long as I have to run my shop situated here, next to the house we live in! So much to create, and do!! :-)
But thankyou for the possibility to win, dear Jill!

Paper Whimsy has so many things I would love to have.
Thank you for this opportunity.

Happy Creating,

Hi Jill!
I love your blog and your work is super imaginative! Paperwhimsy images are enchanting and so fun to work with. I would love to win some.

Your linked blogs look inviting too, I'll be busy for awhile longer!

Thank you for the tutorial. I have a chance to get either Elements or Photoshop Cs but I'm not sure if one or both will be overwhelming for me.
