    A person with a great sense of humor, she is shining example of what makes the flickr experience so wonderful - friendly, fun, positive and upbeat.

    Thanks for your beautiful photostream and thanks for your friendship!"

    "It is so easy to love Laurie for all her wits and humor! There is no dull moment with this girl and this I think makes her interesting apart from her talent in photography.

    I have only met Laurie recently from a series of her 'hearts' and I never left her stream since then. Now, even when I see her fascinating snowflakes, dews and flowers, I still remember her when I see heart subjects lying around.

    Common to all who knows Laurie, she never fails to bring a smile onto our face. Your happy thoughts and humor is a daily dose I don't want to miss. Thank you for bringing happiness and wonderful images into flickr. You are one of the reasons why we grow addicted and become 'flickr dependent"

    Love you girl !!!"

    "First and foremost Laurie is a one off person of extraordinary kindness and generosity. She has been there for me whenever I needed advice or support and I thankyou for that my friend. Secondly, I have been priviledged to know Laurie for some time and to see her grow and develop from a great photographer into a very fine image artist and certainly one of my favourites on Flickr, one of the best!!!.

    And if that wasn't enough, she loves fishing too, what more could one want! LOL Well done Laurie and many thanks! xoxo"

    "What can I say about Laurie that hasn't already been said? She is talented on so many levels; her sense of style is fresh and inspiring. She has a special knack for capturing beautiful and authentic essence of nature. Might I add, she’s brilliant with names of plants and flowers too. She’s quite a character and a dynamic full of life woman with a big heart. Her spirit of friendship and her flair for photography are equally admirable. Visiting her photostream is pure delight and it has been my daily routine. I always enjoy her generous and witty comments. I am grateful for her friendship and support. Keep up the great work, McPretty! *hugs*"

    "This is the very first time I write a testimonial for a photographer just discovered, after only three days of attending. Why?
    Laurie's stream is a flag of joy, a constant flow of feelings, a daily diary of life returned to observers with intense simplicity, and with straight power.
    Looking at these works my heart and my minds resonate; and that's what I am constantly looking for. Feel."

    "Laurie...she was born gifted with many talents, she knows perfectly what to do with her camera - a master in many styles, but mostly in flowers macro and everything in connection with Mother Nature - well, some times she can amaze everyone with a fantastic beer macro looking like an elegant abstract !
    Apart from being an EXCELLENT photographer, Laurie is a fantastic person - incredible spontaneous in her fabulous replies, with a smart sense of humor (personally I adore it ), a great positive energy and a superb smile.
    She is a great friend for all times - thank you Laurie for existing on Flickr, on my friends list - and most important, in my life - you are my sunshine each day I can meet you !
    P.S. - I am sorry I am not so good at English to state here all I love about you...damn !"

    "Laurie has only been a contact of mine for a short while and in that time I have seen her porfollio and ideas grow from strength to stregnth, Laurie loves trying different ideas and subjects and her enthusiasm is evident for every one to see.
    She is not affraid of constuctive criticism and relishes a challange and I hope that she will continue to do so, It has been for me a privilege to get to know Laurie as a friend and a fellow photographer with a sense of humour and fun. Keep it up girl!!

    Laurie I feel the need to up date this, In the last month or so you have advanced like a sprint runner, your macro shots of the natural world are stunning, and i feel that your photography as a whole has so much improved that it looks as if your inner self as taken over my friend, very well done indeed please keep it up Laurie.

    I feel that I have to re-edit laurie's testimonial for the third time she has in my opinion flurished into the most talented photographer her ideas seem to be endless, laurie's images are just stunning, thought envoking and full of mind blowing impact, they nevers cease to amaze me, twelve months seems a long time and I can not wait for the next twelve to see what she brings out next, very well done my friend!

    "I stop by here just about every day because you just never know what Laurie might post a photo of. Whatever it is, you will probably say to yourself, "why didn't I think of that?". I found her photostream through the flower groups and her floral photography is marvelous, but for that matter, so is all of her photography. Laurie succeeds doing things with color combinations that my modest outlook would never conceive of doing. Her vision is sharp and clever and she can turn the mundane into a thing of beauty and wonder. When you speak of natural talent and an endless spring of creativity, here it is folks. And lucky for us, she is dedicated to sharing her world through her eyes."

    "My daily visit to Laurie's photostream is total delight! Visiting her is like a walk in the most delicious and heavenly garden you have ever seen and pure soul medicine.

    Here hides a pot-pourri of gazinias, roses, lilies, honeysuckle, crysanthemums, sunflowers, pansies and other floral treasures that are total delight. These beauties are surrounded by a glorious array of leaves and berries and watched over by the special birds, bugs and butterflies that are lucky enough to share Laurie's wonderful world of nature.

    Laurie is also the sweetest contact who turns every sentence she writes into a wonderful little gift. I treasure her as a friend as well as an inspirational photographer and am so pleased that Flickr helped me find this Minnesota diamond!"
