    I like the heart, I would have found some words on the page with some meaning though. What I see when I look at it is: "Things move west which clubs the heroes", now maybe this is a sign, RUN while you still can.

    The fingerprints on the CD distract me from looking at the colors.

    I've seen the ring/heart/book thing hundreds of times. So to me, it's just kind of like beating a dead horse to a puree.

    The CD shot is interesting. But the white blob in the upper left kills it for me. Good start though.

    lol I think it would be 10x easier to grab another CD, clean it off, and take a shot!

    Wow--you're a regular wordsmith Tyler! I like that turn of a phrase. If I knew how,exactly, I might make that my quote o a TPF member phrase in my sig file, the way Burnsw6 or whatever quotes the "I'd probably blend out the cameltoe," phrase.
