Hi Renee, Ron, Ray, Monnie, and Tammy!

MY FRIENDS! It's "FINALIST DAY" and you STILL came to visit me! WOW! Now that is COOL! :D

I really enjoyed making this one but then made way too many MAYBE's and SAVED my changes a million times...so I am not even sure that I entered the right one! AHAHAHAHA! Oh well! I THINK I DID! :)))...and the music is pretty!

Having Kiki and Leif here meant so much. I hope they like this one.

Tammy, if you don't mind SMUDGE MARKS all over your stuff I'd be glad to come and change the clothes in your closets.

HEY! I want that white cotton blouse you are wearing on your AVATAR for payment however. I really like it and can never find one like it.

DEAL?

THANK YOU EVERYBODY! Very much!

-Laura LooLoo

I wonder who that handsome looking couple is. They're not in any way connected to the mysterious yellow car, are they? Oh, that's right, we discovered who they were. BTW! That was great detective work, Sister. Sherlock is looking at you with great envy!! HEHE!
I LOVE this image. Fantastic work!! Right out of an old movie.

Thank you Pictures, Images and Photos Gentlemen!

Always a pleasure to have you viewing my work.

This visit from BPers Kiki and Leif Kjaer meant so much to me. To be able to make some fun creations with them in it was an honor for me as well.

I hope the Judges Will Take A Good Look! (Beginning to finish).

Hey, Pom!
I missed this lovely work of art last year, and am really happy you submitted it again! Your DD work on this is SO well done. Hope the judges think the same.
Coincidence: I just congratulated Leif on his early winter photo (from Can-a-da...) making Finalist this month. Fingers crossed that this romantic image is among next month's Finalists (and beyond).
BTW, you're right: they make a charming couple, even from behind.

Gosh you guys. Thanks so much! :))) I made this in PSE7. The smudge tool did most of the magic! Hey guess what? When I re-loaded PSE7 into the new lap top earlier in the year, the SMUDGE TOOL seems to not be there anymore! :( I depended on that filter a lot and also the FRAC is not there...but I knew it wouldn't be as that is an add on (plug in) for PSE7. Which is, in part, why you don't see me here much anymore. MY TOOLS that I used the most are not there when I need them. (Boo-hoo!)

MARE! Thanks! I will go visit Leif's Finalist of Canada right away! I am so out of touch with all the galleries these days and I do miss you all very much.

Hi Jeff! Thank you!!!

Kalena, they ARE a romantic couple. They still hold hands after 27 years of marriage! Neat hey? And they FLIRT with each other! I love that about them! :)

Night night and THANK YOU AGAIN!
Pommy-Lala

(Not to be confused with Benny Hanna or the Dommie Llama!) All of which I am sure that I have mis-spelled! HA!
