Shanter - bitter much? Wow. Then why didn't YOU make a cool tutorial and share it with us? Who cares if it already existed, this was very nice of her to lay out the photos, etc. I am grateful for those who share their techniques. I live in Mexico and don't speak Spanish completely, so online tutorials are all I have.
