Hi Everyone, just an update on my Grampa's poems - again! I have read them to 2 groups one with 10 people one with over 50, I'm thrilled to say they were REALLY well received and I had great feedback from the groups. Another next week and then the next in - October!

Now onto my playing picture heavy - My post today is because I was in a conversation with a blog friend and she mentioned she drew! I didn't know that, so she sent me a few of her drawings. Thank you Jacki.

I thought they were just beautiful and decided to "play" with them. They came as photos from her sketch pad, so the photos weren't that good, but Photoshop to the rescue. I thought they deserved recognition, and, as they are "simple" sketches, I decided on "simple" layouts.
This is the first one.

Oh, Faith, your friend is truly talented! These are marvelous. I'm so impressed with what you did in PS and I really love the first one you showed us. Maybe you should convince her to make digis so that we can all use them? :-D
