ME: A Sister in the Bloggerette Society!

I've never been in an actual sorority, or particularly wanted to be, but it looks like the time has come. I've been accepted as a Sister Bloggerette, and today is *RUSH* day! (Want to join? Just click on the button at the upper left of this page to find out how!)

Our Rush assignment was to take this photo

and make something with it, anything we pleased. When we'd done that, we were to frame the piece and put it into our Rush pots. The one rule: You had to have a picture of yourself somewhere in the post.

Now, my printer's out of color ink, and I didn't really have time to work with tangible bits and pieces in the construction, which made following the letter of the law a tad difficult, but hey, I'm teaching myself Photoshop one project at a time. This was a natural.

Here's my finished piece:


Sooooo....uhmm...I'm the one with the glasses! To see it better, just click on it, and it will enlarge. I hope when I can get ink for the printer to really print this out, but for now, this was the best I could do!

Teaching yourself Photoshop? Honey, you did a wonderful job!

But, I must tell you that your Coffee Pot People are genius! I'm ready to run right out to the shed and pull out the ones from my camping gear and make one of my own. They are FABULOUS!
