  31. Wow, Beth! I don't know how I missed this, but I just saw it over at Creative Fingers - you were Top 3 - well deserved! And I thought to myself - I don't remember seeing this! All I can say is WOW! This is amazing! All the details are perfect, I love the hair on the floor - perfect! My father, although retired now, owned his own business as a hairstylist, later became a teacher of cosmetology, so this scene is so familiar to me! I love everything about it! I cannot imagine the time it took to make this, but it's obviously a labour of love! I could look at it for hours and still see something I hadn't noticed! Well done, my friend!

  32. What a clever idea, so pretty and so much fun!
