From Paul Cooper:

All entries for Mandy’s latest lucky dip can be found on our web under Gallery > Competitions then select “Fun" from the genre’s.

Our "Meet the members” section is filling up nicely. Look under Portfolios > Meet the members. If you have not sent Paul an image yet time is running out as he has a Plan B; an on-line cartooniser he is itching to try - you have been warned!

A few folk have started to add their portfolio to our site. Portfolios > Members with portfolios. If you would like your own portfolio we are aiming for 6 to12 images with descriptive filenames, and some chat about you. Click couple of “read more” to see the layout. Paul will help with all aspects of getting your images on-line.

Best, Paul
