My Shoe Fettish

I bet you can relate to that extra bounce in your step when you're wearing the perfect pair of shoes!  Well, paper shoes put that same bounce in my step!  I just love them!  They have been featured on the pages of my favorite magazines, in the posts of my favorite bloggers and in the galleries of some of the most talented crafters!

Before Christmas I decided that it was finally my turn to create some shoes of my own but they were gifts so I didn't post them.  Now, months later, I'm finally revisiting the pics of them and am determined to get them posted!

Here is the first one I would like to share.  This was one that I taught in a class at Photo Memories just before the holidays... the ladies did a beautiful job on them in class!  Thank you to Terri at Artful Affirmations for her wonderful template, tutorial and inspiration!
