jessica, Thanks for the congrats. So glad I finally decided to join. Now I feel like I'm part of the BP family. As for my "Painted Mum", glad you like it. I have been trying several diffeerent techniques which I find challenging. I love to take photos but to be creative with them is quite an experience. Eleanor #4301922
