~°~ Original by Meetjes Plekje ~°~

Sadly Meta passed away November 2013. We miss her lovely personality and her beautiful tutorials!
I will still be translating her tutorials as a tribute to her, she told me she would love that and gave me permission to save them, I also placed the Dutch originals at my site so they will not get lost.

Please read my TERMS before sharing this tutorial!
