  1. Hi Dee, you left a comment on my tulips photo in my blog.....I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by and answer your question: Yep I took that photo. It's a pot of tulips I took to work, they bloomed out so beautifully, I took pictures of them for a week! That picture I took with the tulips sitting against a solid color wall. Then using elements I added the texture to it, turned out pretty. I love to play with textures and colors, and every once in a while one of them turns out pretty neat :)
