A good Monday, everyone! I’m not racing the clock this week! LOL In fact, I’m putting this post up on Sunday evening, just to be sure I am not late.
I want to share a couple of things with you all. The first is the most recent challenge entry for Digital Whisper that I did. A dear lady, and an incredible artist, herself, by the name of Barbara Moustafa, hosted this one and she asked that we have a look at the art of Maggie Taylor. Wow! If you haven’t seen or heard of Maggie’s art, go see her website. You’ll be hooked, like I was. It turns out, too, that Maggie lives here in my home town! Small world, eh? LOL
There is also a really interesting .PDF article on Maggie, here:
Here is my piece that I did for the challenge:

Then, there is this one, from another challenge at DW, the ‘Digital Challenge’. The image of the stairs was our starting image. All credits are below post.

See what I mean about the ghost? LOL
A few weeks back, I said I was going to post a pic of my grandson, Kaleb. He’s almost walking! Any minute now! LOL He’s that close! Here he is at Jaela-Boo’s(granddaughter) birthday party: Can you tell he was having a moment? LOL
This image is deceiving; he usually has a great big smile on his face! LOL
I’m going to stop here so I can get this posted, but, I will finish with some links and add them in another post. Check back tomorrow if you want to read about some of the great spots on the web that I have found.
Until then, do have a nice afternoon, everyone.
As usual, keep on

You can’t win if you don’t enter.” It was this that encourages me to enter contests that I run across online. What do I have to lose? Sometimes, the contests are for monetary wins, or a benefit valued at some expense. More often than not, though, the ones I find are for services, such as free subscriptions to websites with resources. Such was the case, recently, when Graphicmania ran their contest where the winner would receive a three-month’s subscription to Vectorius. Three winners were chosen randomly, including moi! Since vectors can be used in Photoshop, this is fantabulous! Vectorius has around 1800 vectors on file. Can you imagine?! LOL
The second was from GraphicMania, too, but, that prize was $30.00 in an account at DepositPhotos.com

One of the newest uploads is a book called, “Bookbinding, and the Care of Books”, by Douglas Cockerell. In the files, I found some images of some old books. I thought that with Halloween coming, they might make cool elements for scrapping. So, I cleaned them up, gave an example for you, if you like and have placed them in Box.net for you to download. Here is what you get. Click on the image to go to Box.net for a collage sheet to download. Or, click on this link to get the .png files from Box.net. Thank you!
There’s a funky little surprise on the ‘example’ book that I did. Please, feel free to use any or all. I made them for you! LOL Hopefully, you can find a use for these, too.
‘Til next time,
