As the saying goes, you have "blown me away!" I can sure see the reason for those winners' ovals!! Not possible to pick a favorite, but this one is high on the list, just as it was with the judges. EXCELLENT! A knock out! Truly breath-taking, as are the rest! Fantastic work!!! So glad I finally stopped to look! (That's the only "problem" with the site: finding time to really check things out can be a wee dilemma!) #2561476
