Very cool way to portray the highlights of the year. I enjoyed reading and looking at the pictures. I have always wanted to arrive on a train at Saratoga and go to the racetrack.

Love the image. How did you make it?

Sheryl,

Because my in-laws are horse owners, I've been able to go behind the scenes at the track.

Saratoga is a beautiful and fascinating place to visit.


Sarah,

I used the Collage option on Picnik.com - some variations are free, some come only with a Pro account. You might also try fd's Flickr Toys (the Mosaic Maker) http://tinyurl.com/wbdvd

I love taking pictures, and it's fun to edit and arrange them.
