Just because...

...they make me smile :-)...

ETA: Guess what this means...?

...SPRING is a comin'!

Have a bee-utiful week ;-).

P.S. I have been mucking around trying to make my own watermark and signature block using the silhouette from some of my flower pictures. I am using the instructions found on the CoffeeShop site...if you like playing with Photoshop, you MUST visit :-).

P.P.S. More mucking around:

I have used one of the free Photoshop storyboards on offer from CoffeeShop blog
(although I did not use the action, I followed the tutorial for using the template independent of the action). The font for the text (SPRING is nigh!) is also a freebie called 'the Blue Cabin' from Free Scrapbook Fonts. I need to say a big thank you to Susy for introducing me to these two sites by way of her blog (which is also filled with beautiful pictures and fabulous papercraft projects). Thank you Susy!...I've been having so much fun playing with this stuff over the last week!!

Sam I am blown away by your pictures - absolutely amazing! I am saving REALLY hard for a digital SLR as we speak and would dearly love to do half the justice to it as you do... :) Oh and HUGE thanks for the CoffeeShop link. I just spent way too much time browsing there - what a fab collection of fun stuff!
