  4. I bought this Christmas Shoe image earlier this month and had no time to use it but I do love what you've done with it. Great inspiration! I'm off on my travels tomorrow and won't return until January so if I seem to be MIA, it just means I can't beat the grandkids to the computer connections. :-D Merry Christmas, my friend.
