Learn to live so free

And when we hear the voices sing

The book of love will open up and let us in

I think it’s true what they say-

“There’s really nothing quite so sweet as tiny little baby feet”.

But these tiny little baby shoes have to be right up there on the “sweet-o-meter.”


The process is fairly simple and you can see the entire tutorial by clicking here.

Thank you for checking out my eHow tutorials. Everyone over there has been incredibly kind to me and creating content for them has allowed me to continue…
