You did such a beautiful job with SP mary. It really looks like you looking out the window :-) I had my 10 year old computer die awhile back and it was very nerve wracking for the first week, trying to set up my new one the way I was used to and transfering stuff from the old to the new...Once you get it all figured out you can celebrate! #1914418

As some of you know, my hard drive died and I've lost a lot of data. I've still got the drive and hope to retrieve it's data. If I can recover the data, I will paste it in later. I took this picture at the farm where I get eggs, at Moyers corners in Baldwinsville, NY. I layered another picture I took of of myself underneath and the erased the window with a low opacity eraser in PS. CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners and finalists, I'm sorry I've so far been unable to congratulate you personally! Happy Birthday Leanne Boyd.
