Show tonight was so fun and really enjoyed all the CHA pics this past week. Can not wait for March. Canvas was gorgeous and would love to have this canvas in my family room. Plus see up close some of the new flowers, love that jumbo spray! So sweet of you to do this.

I missed the live show, but just watched the recorded version. I love this!!! So pretty and love all the blues (weird to me since purple has been my fave color for 15 years lol) Can't wait to try this at home after I see what I have in my stash and what I "must" got and buy! Thanks for the great class!!

What beautiful canvas!!! I really like the fun texture background with the gold touches. You're always a joy to watch? I love the shiny shrimper glittery background! I have got to get me some of that glassy bead stuff! I'm sorry,still sick. Can't think of the names of that stuff!��
