Serena...these collages are a labor of love---you must have the patience of Job to do one, let alone several!

Mary Virginia!

Thanks for the collage. To be honest, I don't spend much time on collages. I try to have the right number so that photos don't duplicate themselves, but other than that I don't futz much with them. Sometimes, at least with Picasa, the top parts of photos get cropped off automatically somehow and I really haven't found a work-around for that except to change them in to "proofs" which means just a group of photos on a "piece of paper". Then I crop the the proof sheet so that doesn't show as much around the border of the photos.

Catherine -

In case you are looking for a last-minute birthday present . . . I really could use about 5 empty penny roller tubes/paper thingies. I counted all my pennies out this morning. I think I have 240. Or, I guess I could just dump them all in a bag and give them to Kenneth Charles Counts III - between 5 and 10 for each day he has been alive. Tell him when he can speak English, I'll think about giving him paper that folds.

Serena, I do have lots of penny wrappers, didn't read the blog comments in time to bring them last night though. You can consider them a belated present.
