Karen J. McDowell level-classic 3/10/2006 5:29:48 AM

Wow, thanks everyone! This is actually 2 shots that I combined into one. I didn't want her "cut" from a photo so I used the cloning tool to clone her and placed her in the field of flowers photo. I just didn't include the bottom part of her so it would appear she was nestled in the flowers, I then blended around her. I used several different Photoshop filters to get the over all effect I wanted and was really pleased with the results. I'm just so surprised by all the wonderful feedback... thanks so much! #2517534
