Thank you everyone for all the nice comments! To Mazzygirl: I just upgraded my skill level from Beginner prior to posting this review. There are lots of basic things I still don't know how to do and haven't done, and I'm constantly referencing my favorite blogs for step by step tutorials. I'll get there one day though :)
