I started my journey 3 years ago when I found Suzanne's wonderful classroom and I have learned so much! I never had a Copic Alcohol Ink Marker in my hand before... and Suzanne was patient and helpful EVERY STEP OF THE WAY! I am proud to be a Senior Design Team member for Color Me Creative . We have a fun group of wonderfully talented women and have a great time with our challenges. Each challenge provides the opportunity to put those wonderful new skills to use!
Thank you Suzanne for all you do
