Claudia Kuhn level-classic 2/28/2006 5:44:25 AM

Thanks so much Kay and Linda! I worked on this last night. I used the detailed pencil filter in microsoft's Picture It, and erased some off of the poppies... I also used a bit of the dreamy filter, which I also erased off of the poppies.

I couldn't log on to internet this morning at home... don't know if it'll be working later today, so might not get a chance to comment. Had to upload at work after burning a cd. #2478460
