Really having fun with the designs and just love using the mac, never ever thought I would be saying that!
Thanks again for your invaluable help couldn’t have got this far without you!
Tina was a good Teacher, she was very patient and knowledgable. The class was very relaxed, the day went by in a flash and I learnt a lot. The course was only for one day, and was taught on a one-to-one basis. I would certainly book another!
