Effects

Before Pixlr

And after
Addicted!

Also - just for clarification - yes I was Chicken Legs at school and "Wombling" refers to the art of finding rubbish and making it into something new - just like the Wombles of Wimbledon Common. Hubby calls me Madam Cholet! xx

I loved the Wombles! Sometimes I still tell my teenagers to have a 'Womble' round the classroom if they've been a bit untidy. Ofcourse it takes some explaining because most of them haven't a clue what I'm going on about!!!!

My favourite womble was Orinoco x

I said something to my kids not so long ago about The Wombles and they didn't have a clue what I was on about. You obviously have to be of a certain age.

My kids used to watch that...I loved them too:)

I know about Wombling - one of my favourite childhood programmes :)

Am getting the hang of Pixlr :) Not quite the same as Piknic but a reasonable alternative.

I love Pixlr too, and you introduced me Chicken Legs!

I am not divulging my nickname, it goes to my grave!!

I still have my wombles album & the 8 year old is working her way through the womble books.
So I think you are very on trend!

Wow, I haven't used Pixlr before now. I just gave it a try and it is great! Have you tried Picnik? It is fabulous but soon to go away (and perhaps spring another form?). You will be addicted to it too, if you haven't tried it already :) XOL

What's so wrong about being creative? Look at it that way, :D. Being creative is so much fun!!

I must make a trip over to that website, looks very interesting. Love the b+w old photos on your latest post, how smart those ladies look for their seaside jaunt.
