Monnie Ryan 10/12/2009 8:21:55 PM

Way cool, Laura! They're just getting better and better...! #8031831

Nadya Johnson 10/12/2009 8:25:26 PM

A-W-E-S-O-M-E transformation, Laura! Flexify? Liquify? Distortion tool? You always keep me guessing! He has turned into one cheerful little fella here, and the moon has become a diamond-drop. Very cool! (Watch out for that moon though... sounds kind of dangerous, to me. Best not be in the Haunted Woods aloooooooone!!) By the way, as always, I like your poetry! #8031843

Ann Coates 10/12/2009 8:27:05 PM

Cool and creative Laura. I love the cheeky little grin on Mr Pepper's face. #8031846

Kenny Metro 10/12/2009 8:46:15 PM

WOW! This is a cool creation.
You really should pass the ashtray...

Great DDR WORK SIS... I am feeling fine with Mr. Pepper here.. he makes me feel safe.. thank his smiley face!
THe MOON is a little scary though..I better stick close by!!!

Laura E. Swan 10/12/2009 10:24:26 PM

Hi Renata! Thanks Sweetie!

* * *

Gosh Annette! That was such a cool thing to say. Thanks lots!!! :)

* * *

Monnie so are yours! Cant wait to see the other covered bridges you have in store for us!

* * *

Hi Nadya! I did this in a program called WILD PHOTO EFFECTS. You can BLOW things up, stretch them expand etc...Ever seen those greet cards of Cats & Dogs that have HUGE EYES? Tomorrow's image was done with SMUDGE PSE7. HA! The prodigal tool! So glad to have him back! Wait to see!

* * *

Hi Ann! :) Isn't he cute!? (I almost hated to cook him...) HA!

* * *

RETRO! How fun to see you here! Are you insinuating that I am high? HA! Okay,!

* * *

Hi Chrissy! Yes. We can trust Mr. Pepper. Queen Kewpie said he is the leader of the pepper pack. Humm...Do you suppose this makes him Sargent Pepper?

Don't worry, Sis. You will be fine. Just don't start flailing your arms around. YOU KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN THEN...!!!


* * *

Thank you guys and please! We must be very careful in this last stretch of Haunter Forest.

Anything can happen!




Kirsten Kiki Kjaer 10/12/2009 10:54:47 PM

This is AWESOME, SSSL! Image AND poetry!! I LOVE both!! Fantastic work, Sis. That grinning face is sooooo cute. And the moon looks like a parachute.
But of course I know that it's merely trying to make us feel safe for a moment and then - one mistake - PUFFFF!!! We're gone.
So I'll take your advice and stay close to the ground and focus!!! #8032021

Fantastic Laura!! Love your very creative and beautiful work and Pats addition too..LOL..Keep up the outstanding work!!!!
Sorry I haven't been keeping up. Guess I got lost in the woods...Things have been kinda hectic around here the last few days. My wife's favorite aunt unexpectedly passed away Sunday morning so I'll be gone for a few days. Probably next week before I can post or comment again... #8033030

Laura E. Swan 10/13/2009 9:40:44 AM

Okay...I'm freaked out...this music is way too good! HA! Kill murder? Are those the lyrics? OM GOSH! HA!

Wuahhhh!!!!!!! #8036730

Laura E. Swan 10/14/2009 10:05:34 AM

Hi Ellen! Thank you! We all had so much fun during Halloween month. This was part of that series.


Nancy J, you are so kind! Wouldn't that be FUN?

This is cute, hilarious, and perfectly done. How cleaver you are. who is the beautiful woman in many of your images? I think I once knew! congratulations Laura on all your fine work. #10119662

Laura E. Swan 5/2/2012 7:29:36 PM

Hi Phyllis! You're so sweet! You know, I was in the kitchen cooking and cut a red bell pepper in half and saw the face plain as day. The rest is history. :)

Well, that is just little old "Mio" in my images. I have fun calling my SP's by different names. Sisters and cousins...but I love DDR and use myself as a guinea pig.

Thanks for the dandy visit. :)))

-Laura :D #10120024

A Piping Pepper Gathered Us
All 'Round Tight,
To Tell Us A Tale
Of The Full Moon And It's Plight.

He Said,

All The Peppers On The Ground
Chattered and Agreed
They Said,
If The Haunted Forest
You Ever Hope To Leave...

You Have To Plod On Slowly
Shuffling Our Feet Close To the Ground
Never Lift Your Arms And Try Not To Make A Sound...

For If You Wander Aimlessly
Carefree, Skipping and Amuck
The Moon Will Feel Your Anti-Gravity
