OK this is so funny. I was in your Webinar today and looked through your gallery when it finished (as I remember emailing you once and putting 2+2 together) I saw this capture and couldn't believe how incredible it was. (sorry sometimes I only look and don't leave a comment) And here it is again...right where it should be. Best of luck in the next round, Laurie. I think it deserves to be there for sure!!! Just AWESOME girl.
