So addictive, in fact, that sometimes I prefer tweaking photos instead of writing, (ssh, don't tell my publishers, :1eye:)

I use CS2, but rarely ever touch the other programs that came with photoshop. Most of my images come from great sites like Dreamstime, fotolia, morguefile, and photorack.

My portfolio lists the odd jobs I have done, either for myself, or for other friends, and my premade Designs link (both found at the top of the page), lists the images I've done because an idea struck my fancy.

I do banners, headers, bookmarks, and I am teaching myself a few things in order to do cover art for e books. I owe a lot of my education to Tuesday Dube, Sable Grey, and Anastasia Rabiyah, all great ladies who have shared their knowledge.

My work can be found here (http://fantasiafrogdesigns.wordpress.com) and would love to hear what you think, if you have any suggestions or love to give feedback.

Your artwork is gorgeous! I also dabble in PSP. I used to do it quite a bit. With it, I've done a couple of book covers, though I am nowhere professional. :)

I was so complimented when a stationery site took some of my work and turned it into "Artwork of Miss Mae -- Fusion". (http://thundercloud.net/stationery15/fusion/index.htm) If you'd like to see my slideshow of some of my work, it can be viewed here. (http://www.missmaesite.com/myartgallery.htm)

This is my latest header for my graphic art site. I did it yesterday.

Those are awesome! I love doing graphics, even though most of the pics are one's I ran across on the net....I just pretty them up somewhat :D (Example:) http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/198366_10150155619734188_740944187_8296029_2143688 _n.jpg
