Hi Erin! Thanks for the like on my Monogram Cutout wedding invite. I realized that I probably can't have a customize-able element "cutout" so I've been tweaking the design a bit. But your support means so much! I'm a huge fan. I get your monthly screensavers and adore them. Best of luck to you always! Beth
