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.

Friday Fix It #18

IBefore

I love Friday’s!  For one its the beginning of the weekend.  Then there is the Friday Fill-In meme which can challenge your brain.  And then there is the Fix It Friday meme over at i {heart} faces which challenges our photo editing skills and allows us to get creative with other people’s photographs.

So above we have the before shot.  And here {just below} is my first edit.  I basically cropped the picture because the window in the background is too distracting with all that light shining through.

And lastly, I decided to get creative with the cropped picture of went with a scrapbookish type edit.  This is such an adorable child that had so much to say without saying a word.

Picture of the Day 6/05/09

Today has been a day of challenges.  First there was the Friday Fix It.  Then trying to decide what to post as the Picture of the Day.  And finally it was Crazy Hair Day at my son’s school.  Its somewhat hard to do Crazy Hat Day on a boy who gets his head shaved with a guard.  Then I thought back to my days in high school and all the crazy things I used to do.

Then the solution came to me.  MASCARA!  It used to drive my mom crazy when I would walk out of the house with colored streaks in my hair.  Then I had my “aha” moment of the day.  I culd use a picture of my son with a streak of black mascara in his hair as my Picture of the Day.
