Its time to SHOW YOUR SKILLS! with Everyday Elements…
Amanda over at Everyday Elements is hosting a Show Your Skills editing ‘giveaway’.  She’s paired up with Isabella LaFrance Photography and is giving a $15 dollar credit to the winner! Good luck to all!
Here’s Amanda’s original:

And here is my play:
I used PS4 to edit.  First I brightened the image a bit, and played up her eyes just a tiny bit.  I added another layer, selected some of the greeny color in the original picture, filled as an overlay, and dropped the opacity way down.  I also added a sun flare layer, and played with some texture.  Hope you like it! Head on down to Everyday Elements, by clicking the button below and have some fun of your own!

Napkin rings anyone?

To go along with these cute little cupcake toppers, at the suggestion of a friend, here are some printable napkin rings…Just click on the image, and you will be redirected to a site where you can download.  It’s a pdf file, and 5 images per page.


Each measures about 1.75" by 6". Easy as printing, cutting, wrapping & taping! Regular old printer paper works just fine, or you can also use more textured paper to dress it up. Perfect size for other projects, too… votives, candle holders, and more! Have fun, and Happy Harvest!


I Heart Faces….Orange!
So last week I felt like I had to enter the I Heart Faces challenge of the week, which was pink… I was super amazed and honored to  have gotten a mention, even if I didn’t make the top ten.  This week’s theme is orange… I had a little trouble narrowing down the image to use, but this is what I came up with.
Taken here in Riverside, it’s a beautiful mama pregnant with her second son.  Enjoy, and be sure to mosey on over to I Heart Faces and join the fun. Click the link, or this cute button…
