Hi Elsa!! BIG CONGRATS to you on this beautiful image!


Elsa Gary July 31, 2008

hey erica,
thanks so much! I haven't even had a chance to look through the winners.
how are you? i've seen some of your images in contests...looks like you're doing great work. your sons must be growing up. are you selling your work? it was fun being in a class with you. do you still take any? not that you need them! hope you'll fill me in on what you've been up to. I just came back from 3 weeks in europe...prague, berlin, and a few places in poland where my grandparents were from. prague was amazing...lots of photos from there will be showing up on my gallery soon!
