I refuse to tell you how long and hard I worked at extracting this picture, lol, and it's not nearly as good an extraction as Miss Judy has been doing. She's become quite the "extraction queen" and I'm so jealous 'cause I just can't seem to get the hang of it. LOL
Anyway, this is, again, Carol's "Elegance" kit from cjsscrapbookingwithattitude. Seems like we are all loving this kit Miss Carol. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us.

I know that expression on her face only too well...I've seen it a million times when our kids were growing up and a million more since I became a grandmother. The look that says...."don't look at the price tag, look at how badly I really, really want this". LOL
Kit is Carol's "Grungy Valentine". You can find it at cjsscrapbookingwithattitude.
Dad's Parkinson's Disease is a little more under control since they changed his medicine. He still has Hospice nurses who come to check on him and they are getting him a "First Alert" button to wear since he is now home alone. He calls it his "help I've fallen button". lol He seems to be doing much better now that he doesn't feel that he has the responsibility of caring for Mom. Even though Hospice nurses visited daily, they weren't there 24 hours a day.
Mom seems to be adjusting to the assisted living home pretty well. It's only about 7 blocks from Mom and Dad's home, so Dad can visit her really often. (yes, he still drives at 92 years old..sigh)She keeps assuring me how nice the people are and how clean everything is. Still, there are days when I call her that she insists that I just left from visiting her. Yesterday she asked if I had seen Daddy today, when I said "No Mom, it's been a while since I've actually seen Daddy", she said "Well don't you think you should run over and see about him?" She forgets that I don't live there anymore. It's times like this that break my heart and I usually end up crying for hours after talking to her. But, then, she has her good days when she understands everything and sounds perfectly content.
I am the one who seem to be having the hardest time dealing with all this. So again I thank you all for being here for me and listening to me and just being the the great friends that you are. I love you all dearly.

I hadn't done anything with it before because I wasn't quite sure what I wanted. So today, I've been playing around in PSE5 and made a couple of "background papers", (well, they're nothing to brag about, just picked colors from the pic and texturized them) but I was kinda happy with them. Then I extracted the image of Christ from a pic I found on the web, added a fitting scripture and this is the result.
I try to always give credits so, lol:
Photo by Gary Hill; image of Christ found free on the web, and scripture from KJV Bible.
