I love Audacity. If only I could have gotten the AutoTunes plugin to work! I actually had to reinstall Audacity several times as I attempted to install a plugin that would add the AutoTunes sound effect to Audacity. I read blogs, watched tutorials, nothing worked. So due to technical difficulties, I didn’t get into the audio challenges like I would have preferred this week. But there is plenty of time for that in the next two weeks.

Friday’s daily create was back to photography, which makes my heart go pitter patter. Our assignment was to take a picture that represents your favorite color.

For this oceanic inspiration, I chose a picture I took of a jellyfish at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, where I am a member and frequent visitor.
Sunday’s Assignment – Take a picture that represents your favorite weather. My favorite is BEACH WEATHER! I’m a beach baby! Or better yet, my babygirl is an adorable beach baby. My mom is smokin’ hot too in her beach hat. Notice the theme here? I think my next home needs to be somewhere warm and sunny.
Love the colors and themes this week. Now I’m getting all excited for summer (I’ll skip spring, thank you very much. Too much rain)!
