I'm Back!

Wow I can't believe how long it's been since I've updated my blog. Our Advanced Digi class at Jessica Sprague really did me in. I learned a ton, but I seem to have gone onto overload after the class. Maybe I just went on strike. I did the class is Photoshop CS3 instead of the easier Photoshop Elements. I loved CS3 and now just have to wait until i can afford to purchase the more expensive program as I guess I have gotten spoiled and like it much better than Elements.

The weather has finally warmed up which means Jasmine has been in the pool several times a day now. The other morning about 8am I hear this big splash and of course figure Jasmine has jumped in the pool again. I look out the bedroom window (yes I was still in bed) and to my surprise it wasn't Jasmine in the pool. A duck had landed in the pool!





I ran to close the dog door so the dogs wouldn't run out and chase the duck away before I could get pictures. I get outside with the camera and the duck is just swimming around in the pool having a grand ole time. We don't have ducks near our house so I have no idea where this duck came from. I kept looking around to see if there were other ducks flying around, but didn't see any others. After swimming around for about 5 minutes we heard duck honking and our duck flew off.

We are doing the Photo a Day for May at JS so i'll be posting more pics here soon. There are some really outstanding photos in the gallery there. Mine are more snapshots, but some real art going on there. Stop by there are take a peek.

See you soon!

Great to hear from you again Lisa. In regards to DID - I haven't finished my last layout yet, loving it but needed to take a break to do real life stuff.
Love the photo of the duck, very clear.
Have a great mothers day (oh, is yours on Sunday? ours is)

Hiya, Lis!

Glad to see that you've manned your station again. :) Now if I can only find the time to update my own bloggy...!

Take care, and I'll be seeing more of you guys once this new round of reports are written and sent out!

Your photos look really great! I'm so glad you captured the one about the duck. I haven't had much time for anything!

Thought I'd pop by and send some love your way!

Hi Lisa,

I haven't blog hopped in forever! So, just stopping by to see what you are doing! Love the duck.

It is so dry here, South FL, I am surprised birds haven't been in our pool!

DID exhausted me too! I still have Lesson 3 & 4 to complete.

I LOVED your storyboard challenge.

See you in Chicago!

Lisa, I'd been out of town and hadn't known about Mark's death until today. I am so so sorry to hear this and what you must be going through. Please know that I'll be part of the vast network of people praying for you and thinking about you, hoping that some moments of comfort can find their way to you as soon as it's possible for you to feel them.
