Love these photos of the kids...

We got home from playgroup on Tuesday, and the kids were really happy and just mucking around out the front of the house, so I thought, what the heck, and grabbed my camera, and what do you know, they actually turned out okay! It really was the perfect day for it, nice bright blue sky etc. etc....

Anyway, I've been having a play in Photoshop and here's what I came up with.


^Love this one. I was lying on the ground and Erin was actually jumping on my tummy! LOL!! This is probably one of the best photos I've ever taken - a big fluke though! Love it with the blue sky behind her.


Here's Aiden mucking around with the rings that came with a maccas toy from the party :) Couldn't have timed this shot better, again, a big fluke :) OMG though, I just realised how much his teeth have moved from sucking his thumb, have to get him out of that habit quick smart!!

and this is the original photo I took of the kids in front of the garage door...


which I played around with in photoshop til it looked like this...

I adjusted the curves, then exposure to give it that washed out look. I love the end result, and can't wait to scrap them now :) I have the perfect papers in mind. Maybe this is just what I need to get my mojo going again!

They are all great shots Leah, and I am so glad that you have begun to find your mojo again .It must feel so good to be paper crafting once more.Good luck with getting Aiden off sucking his thumb...it is a toughie.

Oh Leah, I can feel you getting all thoughtful about a page, woohoo!!! They both have a splash of orange in their outfits, so you could start with that....actually Erin's outfit matches your Blog title!!!!!

Ooooh, love the Photoshopping! I bet you are loving having some extra time on your hands now to have a play like that. Can't wait to see those pics scrapped!
