All the crab you can eat!

I love crab!

This was the last layout I worked on ... from our Florida vacation....

Don't the crab legs look YUMMY?

Thank you for the votes!!!!

I appreciate everyone who voted for my picture... I just found out that the company has many many complaints against their practices. Thanks to Jennifer Adkins who did the research for me! I am removing the link and if you submitted a photo to them ignore their emails!!! They are making an offer to publish your creative work and then they want you to purchase the book... complaints have been filed against them. People never received their book, many photos in the book that others received are stock photos... their are just to many complaints against them... It's a shame!!!

That's my bad news of the for the good news.......

My KNK element is on it's way!!!! YEAH!!! I'm so excited about this... you know I loved my wishblade but when designing for others you just need to cut faster and have crisp clean cuts every time!!!

I'm looking forward to many things that the Klic-N-Kut has to offer..the maximum cutting width of 8.5 inches and 500 grams of force! Which will cut thicker materials like chipboard and funfoam. It comes with 2,000 True Type Font CD, you know I love to work with fonts!

This will be good for you too!! I won't have to wait to get files converted... I will be able to work faster leaving me some more time to get files to you... My work will be more detailed.... I can't wait for it's arrival.... It should be here on Wednesday!!!

So to celebrate I am giving away one of my files "We all scream for Ice Cream".

I'm still proud of the picture!!!

I have been nominated for publication in The Best Photos and Photographers of 2007 and I had an exclusive invitation to join the International Society of Photographers!

This is just some of what they have written about my photos and the invitation:

Carrie, you should be genuinely proud of your accomplishment. You have been selected to participate in this very special project because of your unique vision. It is our pleasure to publish fine photographs such as yours in this special volume.

Dear Carrie Schwartz,

The Editorial Advisory Board wholeheartedly agrees that your photographic abilities warrant nomination into the International Society of Photographers - a photographic organization that is world-renowned and dedicated to recognizing photographic talent such as yours.
