Mother's Day Photo Collage

Hello and Welcome.

Today I did a Video on my camera. Although the blogger video does not show a photo on the front, please click on the arrow in the lower left hand side to get the show started. I tried to research why I was not getting a photo on the front and instead got a black screen but apparently this is a current known open blogger problem so I at first thought that my file was not uploading and was empty. I hope that it can be fixed in the near future.

So, have you played it yet? I really did not think my voice sounded like that, I guess so. The Collage was on a artists canvas, an 11 x 14 size about 1 1/2 thick. There is a trick to this, the size of the video can only be 100 MB long and I kept on exceeding that range with my ramblings but I think I got it with this one. My learning curve must be very long, seems like I had been working on this video quite a while. Most of the products used are by Basic Gray, the papers, the chip board frames and some of the flowers. The remaining three larger flowers are from Petaloos and the Ornate plate which has my Mother's name in it is a Tim Holtz product.

Please let me know what you think of the Collage and video.
