Hi Jana, Don't worry about it :) Yours is smaller and not the same style. Happy New Year and good luck! - elizabeth

Oh, Jana, thank you so much for your comment on Forget-Me-Not. You couldn't possibly have said anything kinder. It made my day!

I'm so moved, you're too kind. I am very glad that your child like the Journal. It is for me the biggest reward :-) Thank you so much. And I also attach a congratulations for the first place wedding challenge. The design is unusual, atypical, and fine, and that's why you won. I am glad :-)
