  5. Shari, I had the privilege to take all of our classes when you were in Buffalo last year and most recently took classes from Dyan Reavely when she visited Buffalo a few months ago. What a great marriage of the two styles. I love, love, love your work and the art journal feature on SimonSays Stamp. thanks so much for sharing your talent with all of us.
