When I saw the beautiful template, I initially thought it would be difficult. Because, I just saw the funny turtles and the nice surroundings. That’s it. A beautiful photo that already had what it should have.
But then all of a sudden I saw something that I've never seen before. Something fantastic that just asked for some shape and color.

It said to me, "Take the holy GIMP and breathe life into me. But don't use Photoshop, the evil snob's tool."

Said and done! A bold click and GIMP appeared on the crystal wall, magically illuminating the entire Altar of Creation.

HERE is my masterpiece for this week.
Fantasy for the whole family. 🤓
