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 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.

Laura, you have a nack for images #9048615

Kirsten Kiki Kjaer level-classic 11/19/2010 10:39:40 AM

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. #9051518

Laura E. Swan level-classic 11/7/2011 12:25:03 PM

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). #9789446

Emile Abbott level-classic 11/8/2011 3:00:17 PM

This image just draws you in and embraces you with their connection together. #9791957

Mary K. Robison level-classic 11/21/2011 4:17:42 AM

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. #9822479

Jeff Robinson level-classic 11/22/2011 4:33:11 AM

Outstanding work Laura!! #9824498

Karen Kessler level-classic 11/22/2011 6:50:45 PM

How did I ever miss this one? You made it so "dreamy", Lala! Wonderful work on this romantic scene! :) #9825940

Laura E. Swan level-classic 11/22/2011 7:30:35 PM

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!

(Not to be confused with Benny Hanna or the Dommie Llama!) All of which I am sure that I have mis-spelled! HA! #9826008

Irene Colling level-classic 2/13/2013 8:08:33 AM
