SSSKiki, this is Fan-TASTIC work and I am so glad you told us it is a layered image.

You did an amazing job and I am so very impressed. Now I think you can teach me a few things! :)))))

I love how real Leif looks. As if we see him in 3D! (3 Dimensional).

I cannot tell you how much I love this but I guess you already know. You saw the expression on my face on our Skype call today! :D

BRAVO, 20/20 and a Gold Win from this Judge!
