What a Surprise!

I was totally surprised this morning when I got a comment on the  previous layout that said it was being shown on Gallery Standouts-a blog that showcases digital layouts.  I want to thank them for choosing my layout of Bobby-as he was so proud of himself that day! Thank you again  and thanks for letting me share this with all of my followers.

is what I titled my first layout for Lesson Three of  the Inspired Images  class I am taking with Jana Morton over at Creative Passions Classes. This week we worked with more filters-the Find Edges under Stylized  filters and contours and also on my page I used the poster edges under the artistic filter gallery. I only used one product on the entire page which was the overlay edges.


I like the way the filters bring out the textures in your photos. Thanks for looking!

The overlay is by Jana Morton and included in her Millie’s Cottage  Collection.

For all You Mom’s out there…


Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Blue Herons Nesting

The male Herons come back every spring to this same area in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park near our home. They start building the nests, and the females return about two weeks later. They then lay their eggs and both parents incubate them. By Mother's Day the babies have hatched and you will be able to see them in the nests from the ground. They will have left the nests by the Fourth of July.
