Cathy, Thank you for the privacy labels! They are awesome! And thanks a ton for the tutorial on the blur...I've been doing it a much harder way! And, yep...I always ask if it's ok to share our daughter's photos on my blog or facebook or where ever...99% of the time, it's no big deal but once in awhile, she wants a photo or story kept to the family and I'm totally cool with that!!!
