I found this on eiyiyiyi's blog

Well I think that's the way she spells it! If it's wrong Eileen, I apologize! But the quiz was fun and I thought I'd find out I was a dandilion or something. But imagine my surprise when I find that I am what was my dad's favorite flower! He had a rock garden with Iris in it in our backyard. It was small, but really beautiful. I wish I had a photo of it. I do have pic's of his roses. In fact I have a pic of his Peace rose blooming, with about 2 inches of snow on the blooms! When my mom moved from that house, we moved that bush up to the church, and the last time I was there a couple of years ago, it was still blooming! That's about 30 years ago! Imagine that! That rose bush was planted in our yard when I was about 12. I just had my 60th birthday! I didn't think a rose bush could live that long!!! Well that's my story for today. Funny how our memory is proded by the oddest things. Have a great day everyone!

I found it on Lauren Mullarkey's blog and borrowed it from her. It's wonderful isn't it?

Copic markers ... I start with my lightest color and use a very, very light touch all the way through. I also rub the darker colors on a piece of acetate and "pick them up with the lightest color marker" it makes it easier to blend. Take a look at KiyomiKrafts blog and check out her copic tutuorial. Other than that, just have fun with them. It's like coloring books and crayons all over again!

Hi Jess,

I had a little trouble with this as well! right click on the image, click copy, go to "my pictures" on the start menu, click and paste. then, go to your new post on the blog and upload the picture from the browse menu. Does that make sense?
