Shadow Shot - BYBS - Sacred Life Sunday

This is my second ...
I seem to be 'stuck' on collages lately ...
and this one shows SHADOWS on & around Molly & Ms. Kitty

1. I'm blessed with the company of two devoted fur-friends ... Molly & Ms. Kitty, and I've enjoyed sharing them both from time to time on each of my blogs as I did today, making them the subject of today's Shadow Shot collage. Trisha of Crazy Working Mom asked what program I use for my collages ... and it's Photoshop Elements.

2. Although it's not as much rain as we need here in Southern California, the change in the weather from gusty warm & exceedingly dry Santa Ana winds is more than welcome ... and more scattered showers are predicted to continue through Tuesday. My yard is drinking in the moisture and my skin no longer itches from the dryness.

I created this with collage with pictures
I took of the television screen.

3. I'm about a day behind with recorded Australian Open Tennis Championships ... currently watching 'Round of 16' matches ... specifically the 5th set in the tense match between Tomas Berdych and Roger Federer ... delighted Roger fought back to win sets 3 & 4 after losing the first two sets ... hopeful his momentum will carry him through the 5th and into the Quarter Finals. Addendum: Roger won the last set and moves on to the Quarters to play the winner of the Del Potro-Cilic match!

4. Andy Roddick and James Blake are still 'alive' in the draw as is Serena Williams ... but all other Americans are out. I'm sure Chris B of Ms Cellania is thrilled about Andy Murray's performance and is hoping he'll continue to play well.

5. Although several of the top seeded women have lost their matches, leaving lots of young players to complete for the title with Serena Williams & Elena Dementiev
a, it appears that the top men's seeds are all playing up to potential thus far.

Another wonderful collage. I like the shadows with Molly and Ms. Kitty.

My blessing today was more snow but I didn't write about it because it appeared after I had posted and gone to bed last night! I wrote about a blessing I received last week! Drop by and read about it.

I am sure your two "furballs" are a constant blessing to you! May you enjoy that blessing for a long time.

That's an adorable Molly & Ms. Kitty shadow collage! Yes, our furry friends are very special. I'd be quite lost without mine! Hope you have a wonderful week ahead :)

Karen said...

That really IS a great collage--I love the play of light and dark! I find myself thinking about investing in a Photoshop program--you seem to be having such fun!

Dianne said...

I hope you stay stuck on collages! especially of the critters :)

Ms Kitty is almost as cute as Molly. :)

I love that last Allen quote. I got a 'no duh' moment there. Thank you for that! And, I quite enjoy your collages. These are so cute.

Raven said...

Fun list of blessings and a lovely collage of furry shadows. I enjoyed your pansies and your sky watch too.
