Kerrie's Blog: My AR Collage

My AR Collage

I learn so much working for ActiveRain and through this amazing Community of people.  The opportunities, friendships, knowledge, triumphs, stories, memories and life-lessons will be carried with me throughout my life.  For that and so much more....I am thankful.


If you haven't made your AR Collage yet you should.  Check out Niki's post.

Love it Kerrie - you did such a great job of making this collage! When I look at it, it's like experiencing the full spectrum of feelings and emotions all at once - very profound! Now I just want to go make a collage - lol!

Nice collage. I need to go back and reread Niki's challenge to see what I need to do.

I love it!  And I had missed Niki's post, so I'm glad you pointed it out.  Now I can work on a collage of my own.

Now that is one of the most "feel good" collages I have seen yet!  I've been putting mine off, but it is time to get at it.  Thanks for the inspiration Karrie.

You gave that collage some thought as you put it together..  Flying around to RainCamps..  and I'm so glad it has  a bowl of cherries instead of a bowl of pits!

Hi Lady, I have been assembling my photos. Had no idea I had taken that many with you. And then to try to put them together in a very clever manner.

My goal has been reached...I finally made Alston cry!  :)

You guys really have to do this because we're going to print them out and display them around the office for our 5th Bday party next month.

Kerrie - That's a great looking collage.  I've been experimenting with making little collages using Picnik the last couple of weeks or so.  It is a great tool, and fun to use.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 7 years ago

This is really cool. What program did you use to make this? Thanks for sharing!



Posted by Michael A. Caruso (Surterre Properties) over 7 years ago

Michael - I used Photovisi and it was really user-friendly. 

Posted by Kerrie La Guardia, Let it Rain! (ActiveRain, Community Manager) over 7 years ago

Kerrie - I can't wait to meet you at Rain Camp on Tuesday!  I did make my collage - what a fun thing!  I love yours.  Also enjoyed the success stories.  See you!

Hi Kerrie, The one you made is wonderful. If you know someone that could create the  personalized cards  from digital images for you, this would make a ver special personalized card for you. Great on-line, even better mailed by you.
