    Congratulations on the award! and on your wedding! Hope you had a great time with both.

    Thanks for all the wonderful cut files along the way, especially the boxes and doilies.

    Mary–If you would design a mini scrapbook/album I would buy it. I know some of your files already have smaller albums but a full album of your design would be better! And the directions way clearer!

    I hope your business will be fun and successful for a long time too.

    Hi Leo and Mary, Congratulations on your MS American Made win. You deserve to win as you made a business that was needed by the paper crafting community. Your designs that are passed on to us keep the US paper crafters making American!!!! Good luck in the future and I am hoping you are the overall choice.
