Welcome to day 17 of my Featured Artist, Pay it forward series. Today's featured artist is...Laura (FollowthePaperTrail).
I first found Laura on YouTube through an AMAZING halloween mini she designed. Since that time, I never miss a video. Yesterday I mentioned the term "paper engineer". That is Laura to a tee. She thinks inside and outside the box. She thinks all around the box. Her mind just amazes me. You have heard that scrapbookers look at things a little differently? Well, no one looks at things the way Laura does. ( I mean that in the most positve sense). She can take a simple envelope, and have you transforming it into a book, in an hour.
If you are searching for mini ideas, Laura is the gal to see. If you need a nifty seasonal Home Decor item, see Laura. I could go on and on and on.
Since I first started watchig her on YouTube, Laura has progressed ten fold to classes and kits, Ustream shows, fantastic directions for sale, and designing for Tim Holtz's CHA booth.( My dream job...)
She is a very positive person, easy with a laugh, a great teacher, and her stuff is really fantastic. I strongly encourage you to check her out.

It is intimidating to try and figure out something to make for her. She is one of the masters! So I went with one of my favorites, a tag.
Laura, Thank you for all you share and create, and that you share it with all of us. I cannot Thank you enough for everything you have taught me.
