Raspberry Suite Challenge #3

I'm alive!  Yes, I have been missing from blogland for at least a couple weeks.  There's not a whole lot going on here and I've been feeling a little off too.  But I have been making things and getting up my courage to start submitting.

Well, I have printed out Dawn's Color Challenge every week, put it on my wall but I still forget about it!  Not this week!  I might even still go back and do the others.  They are GREAT combos.  Click on the image below to go to Dawn's blog for  the details.

week 3

Here's my entry this week.  It took me a long time to figure out how to get the colors to work.  At least a couple times I thought, "That's it!"  Only to realize that I had left out one color.  :)

Wow!  I am taking a self-paced photo editing class from Jessica Sprague.com.  I love that I actually know why  to adjust things, instead of just guessing.  I'm still learning, but it makes such a difference already.  According to Jessica's blog, she's turning a lot of her classes into self-paced courses.  I think I'll be taking more in the future.  She's a great teacher.
