  5. Thank you ladies for your kind words of encouragement. No one better than ones fellow blogger pals to support one another.
    Kathy - the cameo is now at home in Lani's house. It is soooo her. It was awesome on her.
    Janna- thanks about the cars. They are pretty fun to work with, but the smaller the car the cooler they are. Lani bought the coolest one today too, but I haven't yet shown it on my blog. Will do so soon.
