Back At the Ranch:

So here's the deal.. My sweet little 11 year old daughter has been super busy cranking out goodness on 'our' new Cricut Expression! (Although, she calls it the Circus Expression.. not sure why..). I have all sorts of goodies I am playing with...

She's even discovered the beauty of some of my new Prima papers... Oh my...some one has to use it!!!!

Anyway, my project is waiting until Sunday to post! (Well, it's not made yet, but it is in the works!)...

Now Go Play!
Watcha Waiting For????

oooooooooooooooh! holy moly that sounds like FUN...consider me completely & expertly enabled!!! :)

ok, so this ought to be an email...but your profile page is not accessible (which may be intentional, but mine was once, UN-INTENTIONALLY, so i mention it!) & i'm running out of time, so please excuse it as a comment! :)

as to how i printed text RIGHT ON the photos: yes, you're quite right, it can quite easily be done in PSE by clicking the text tool and clicking on the photo & then typing what you want to say. you can adjust font, size & color until you like what you see.

in my case, i started making stuff YEARS ago-- (before there WAS a PSE...just PS & it was MEGA-$$$!)--so i am used to using a graphics program by broderbund called "printshop" in which i can manipulate words, images, etc in a system that i find slightly more clearcut than PSE...but possibly only b/c i am used to it!!! (old dog...new tricks...'nuff said...) :)

you can PROBABLY even use MSword for similar results...or...really old school but it'll work: print text on a TRANSPARENCY and then just lay it *over* the photos! hope that helps...feel free to email if you'd like more specific info or have q's! llaurenb@hotmail.com

many, MANY thanks for all of your kind words about matthew's book, they are VERY much appreciated!!!

I have tried every product that is supposed to be great for curly hair. This Moroccan Oil hair line is the best I have ever tried. I have paid for inexpensive

products to very expensive products and this is the VERY BEST I have ever tried in my life, and I am in my 50's. It makes my hair soft, shiny, bouncy, and easy to manage. My hair is shoulder length. No

frizzies or heavyness. I get so many compliments and people just wanting to touch my hair. I am okay with the fragrance.
