To see the photos larger, just click on them - that way you can read the lettering. The click on your "back" arrow to return to the blog. Or, right click on the photos to open them up in a new window or tab.
Thank you for taking the time to look and comment! I really appreciate your help and respect your opinions.
UPDATE: Someone made the suggestion to use white lettering instead of black - which I have done on the third image. That one happens to be my favorite because the size of the images are larger than the other two collages and the orange and blue batts finally shuffled next to each other! Someone suggested using a tan background - which I could probably DO except that would mean doing a text box in Photoshop and then reselecting all my favorite photos again in Picasa and then hope that the tan text box finally shuffled to the right position in the collage. Someone suggested that I use Photoshop to do my own collage - which is a fabulous idea, but I have no idea how to do that! Sigh...so to save myself from a HUGE amount of additional work, I'm hoping the white lettering looks better.
Thank you everyone for your fabulous ideas, suggestions, comments, etc. I knew if I put these out there I would get some great feedback. You guys Rock!
One more try - the second collage adding the tan grid lines to separate the photos a bit and the text in white.
