Creative Cue – Full

This week’s effort…..if wondering what this is all about, then check here.   I am doing this using photographs and Photoshop Elements 8, with which I just play, hoping to learn a bit more by trial and error.  Sometime, when the day contains 48 hours, I hope to use some, or parts of these stitch designs!
