After much searching on the Internet, I came across a terrific, straight forward tutorial on how to make a grab button. Click HERE to not have to go through all the hassle and time that I did. I had a lot of problems and finally realized that for some technical reason, you have to replace the quote marks in the HTML with all new quote marks...go figure!
My grab button with it's code is over on the right hand column with all of of my other buttons. Now you can copy the code to your blog. Thanks.

It's Day 29 in the Beyond Layers class and Kim taught us some new and fun Photoshop tips and tricks on how to make a triptych and an animated gif.
Last Saturday Joe and I flew up to Boni and George's ranch in Bakersfield for the wedding ceremony and reception for George's daughter Kimi to Grant Carver. I was so charmed with Kimi and Grant's daughter Gracie and was able to get off a bunch of shots of her and her BFF. With today's assignment to do a triptych and animated gif, thought it would be fun to use some of the images of Gracie and her BFF from the wedding.

The MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art) artisan fair and fundraiser held this past Sunday April 22, 2012 at the Long Beach residence of Susan Taylor was a big success. In addition to each artist contributing a percentage of their sales to MOLAA, quite a bit was generated from the the sale of raffle tickets for original paintings and giclees. The funds, which had previously been provided but subsequently cut from the public school budgets, will be used to expose students to museum exhibits and workshops. For every $25 donated, three students will get to be exposed to MOLAA. Good work and thank you my friend Linda Varela Oldenburg for all your hard work as the chairperson of the MOLAA docent guild and the organizer for this event.
