She is my granddaughter (one of 7 grandkids). No, it did not take long to do. I had the pieces parts as part of a work assignment where we are building an interface on stories of children with Down syndrome. We are going to put stuff together in Life Glimpses for physicians. I started with the image of just the lace for the background. I cut the book, scarf, pearls, stamp image and place it. I had the picture of my granddaughter from a recent visit. The HARDEST part was cutting my granddaughter from the background and trying to get her wispy hair on the right side. I tried several different methods and was not totally successful. Her image was on a background with both light and dark elements so it seemed very hard for me. I then adjusted the levels and used an Old Photo effect from nik efex--just selected the one I liked which gave a sort of coppery color to her hair. Her parents loved it and my son now has a picture on his desk at work.--Rene

This is really wonderful, is she your daughter? Did this take long to do?
