    Paula,
    I am a follower so I got this in my email. Sounds Cool so I am going to do the hop! Tks for the free images they are really beautiful. As far as your projects go WOWzers! I love all 4 of them! You really have done a terrific job on these! I do have a question for you. It’s about wordpress, do you know how to get the “Badges” on wordpress? I dont see any on your blog so you may not know. What I am talking about is for ex. I am a member at Smeared and Smudged and you know that little box that show your own pic in the left top corner, then pix of other members in a row a the bottom and in the middle it says I am a member at…. I have tried using the widget “Text” and “Image” I was wondering if you knew how to add these? If you would please email me and let me know either way I would so APPRECIATE it. KLDeyette@gmail.com Thank you so much Paula.
    Peace,
