Suggestions please

I'm somewhat brain dead today, I cannot think of a header for this post. Maybe it's because I'm struggling with my internet connection, it's frustrating me so that I cannot think straight, lol. It took about 10 attempts to get my images uploaded, and now they finally are, I've had to try a different setting, so hopefully my post looks okay in the end.

What I wanted to ask was what would you have called this post!? I'm sure there's some great ideas out there, better than my 'suggestions' one, hehehe.

This image is from Bugaboo Stamps and again I was lucky to get it as a free download, and No I did not get all my images as freebies, I've bought plenty too.

I coloured my image with my prismacolor pencils then blended it with sansador (gamsol), and cut it out with a rectangle nestie. Now, in case you're wondering about my little clouds I added in, I did that from following Paula's cloud tutorial here. Please no comparisons, I'm still a learner, woohoo.

The border was done with the Die-namics border from My Favorite Things, and I love it, I want to use it all the time.

I added a little butterfly in the top right corner, but I'm not sure it's visible on the photo, not serious if you can't see it, just trust me that it's there. Lastly, I used the Taylored Expressions sketch number 122. Great sketch, I and might just use it again.

This weekend I am starting my photography course, I can't wait. I sure hope it's not too complicated, I just want to learn how to take great pictures. Then again I think that's like making great cards, you either have the talent or you don't, but I'm about to find out. I sure hope there's a huge big secret they're all keeping and I am finally going to find out what it is. ROFL!

Have a good rest of the week.

Hi Meahni,
Gorgeous colours and papers and what a sweet image. As for a title, the best I can come up with is "Ready for Take-Off"
