Hi Gord, Tammy, Jeff, Colette, Bobby and Michelle! Thank you so much! :D

Bobby! You make me laugh! :)))

Michelle, my youth can be thanked by a Professional program I have for portraits. :D No more wrinkles! Plus I used a filter or two that made the image softer and sparkle. :D

Thank you all. Very sweet of you!

-Laura :)

Hi Tammy, Sherran and Dale!

Tammy, my fortune is yours.

*

Sherran, I love glass necklaces. This one is my favorite and I have a second one on made of crystal.

*

OM GOSH! Dale! I named this wrong. (And I sat there for 15 minutes trying to name it last night. It should have been "Dual Citizen"....HeeHee!!! You should take a scout through the old gallery. I don't use rainbow curves on my face much anymore. I KNOW! SHOCK THE WORLD! :D I got better programs. :) !!!

Thanks you three! Fun to have you visiting.

-Laura :D

Checked it out Laura and am so glad I did. Hadn't been there for awhile. (been on the road) Your creativity is still as out standing as ever. And a big congratulations on all your well deserved awards such as that stunning Mother Nature. Mellowing sure hasn't curbed your imagination. :o)

Oops, a bit late, but better late than never. Now, I'm looking at two of you and that's even better. Two Lauras, what more could the world ask for. Truly magical Laura. Happy 2013 to you and your family.

Portrait enhancement effects aren't the final say, Pom. The eyes are the mirror of the soul, and your eyes are always beautiful.
Very nice SP!

I love this one, Sister.
A very beautiful and appealing SP.
Really GREAT WORK!!
And those eyes are mezmerizing!

Hehe - John. Laura couldn't possibly be 29 since she's younger than me.
But I do agree that it is wonderful to see the other side of her beautiful self :)

I have been re-miss! Please forgive me!

Wm, I checked it out! It's fun to show each other all of our stages of life. Okay, I saw we all dig up a baby picture to post on the Comedy club! Ha! I will do it if you will. You look great!

*

Hi Dale, Yes. You have been jet setting. Did you go to NZ? I will have to come to your gallery and check it all out. Thanks for all you said. I still burn incense when no one is around. Lol...

*

Ann :))) Your comments made me beam. So sweet of you. I never see my side view and I just wanted to see what others see, so about 6 tries later and I got one that kept my nose in the picture!! Happy 2013 to you, too! xo

*

Little Sister Maria, you are more beautiful than I ever could be and it shines right out of your heart like so many others here. I love my BP family and you are all it! :)

*

Hi Mare. :D I should show you the "before" photo. Then it wouldn't be about my eyes it would be about my amazing photo program. HeeHee...But I love what you said and I agree. The eyes say a lot. For us all. You have peace and kindness in yours. :)

*

Hi Brother John. Ah yes. 29. I remember it well. Especially since I am 29 every year now...Oh but wait, Kiki said...Hmmm I'd better get my birth certificate out again. She might be right? Ha! Thanks so much!

*

SSSKiki - Well you are one the the few BPers that has actually met me in person so what you say carries a great deal of care. You are so kind to me and my photos. Just another reason you are my Sweet Soul Sister. Are you sure I am not 29?

*

Hi Amanda! Thank you and you do, too. It's so good to see you when you visit me. It reminds me that I owe you a visit too! I hope all is well??

*

Hi Terry! I wish we were all in Hawaii using our Hawaiian names! Ahhhhhhh...I can hear the Ukelele music now! What a lovely orchid you have in your hair. Thanks dear one!

*

Jo Ann! What are you saying? Have you seen your lovely face lately? You should show it to us more often! Thanks for being so sweet to me. If we have goodness in our hearts there is not one who does not possess beauty. :) !!!

*

Stan, it's in the mail along with your nice fat cheque! (I pay Stan to leave compliments such as this one).

*

Okay, Ellen I don't pay.

Ellen, you made my day! (Stan, I pay, but you....?)

*

Hi Steve! I liked my title too (Sounds like a Book Title don't you think?) but Dale gave me an idea for a better one up above there. :D Too late now. Timing is everything I guess. Thanks for you sweet comment!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! JAN 31st! And Now Comes Valentines Day!

-SSSLaura, Lala, LOTW, Miss Rose and Sister Swan (My name at the convent).
