In a little more detail...

I am a great grandmother who learns something new using Photoshop Elements every day! But will I remember how I did it the next day? Hopefully!

I started designing Persona themes in 2009 just for my own use. When they opened it up for submissions, I started submitting designs. I was an administrator for 18 months. I have pretty much stuck with nature designs using the beautiful Pacific Northwest as my canvas. Now I spend most of my time designing themes and wallpapers to match. My wallpapers are at:

I DO NOT ask for $$ for use of any of my designs as some designers do. I am just pleased you are using them and love it when I get good reviews. I want to thank all of you that take the time to do so. Some of my designs have as many as 45+ layers involved so is very time consuming, but I enjoy it. I am not a professional and have learned everything by trial and error. I have sent more designs to the recycle bin than I have on line!

I got interested in taking photos of something other than my grandkids several years ago. Since I live in a beautiful area where forests, mountains and seashore are right around the corner I have been able to use a lot of the photos in my Persona designs. It is harder for me to go on photo shoots anymore because of my age, but I have lots of photos yet to use and will continue to use them.

There has been a designer lately that have used my designs, wallpapers and photos as inspiration. I am happy I have energized them to start designing, but they should not copyright them, since they are NOT the original artist. So you will see designs that look like many of my themes but have been manipulated. Enough said!

You can check out my blog at: Stop by and visit some time.

My thanks to all of you who use my designs and take the time to review them. I am afraidf I don't have time to reply to them anymore, but thanks.

I took this photo on Chuckanut Drive, south of Bellingham, WA on a Halloween night. Very pleased with how it turned out. At one time, there were a millioin and a half people using this design. Thanks to all.
