Fix It Friday #21

Another reason to love Friday’s? Fix It Friday’s over at i heart faces. Every Friday they will post a reader’s photograph for others to show off their editing skills. This gives me an excuse to purposely learn something new in Photoshop Elements or try my hand at digital scrapbooking. Or in today’s case, a little of both.

What’s in the sky?

You can’t have a summer in the desert without monsoon storms and you can’t have the sky without airplanes flying around.  Last week while I was outside watching the skies, hoping to capture some photographs of the storm rolling through, an airplane happened to be flying overhead.
