Way to go Gretchen!!

Gretchen recently took my 1-on-1 Photoshop course online.  She wanted to learn how to create this first year collage.  Isn't it awesome!!  It's official I am stealing this idea & doing it with my Penelope when she arrives. 

Here's what Gretchen said about the course... "First of all, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all the fun tricks you shared with me!  That's my excuse for being so late turning in my "final exam"--every spare moment I'm spending editing pictures in so many fun ways! :)  I actually finished this project a day or two after we last spoke, got it printed and already have it hanging on my wall. :)"

Thank YOU Gretchen!!

Stella's 9 month old mini session

Not very often do I post an image with eyes closed but this one just made me smile smile smile.  There is no sound more adorable than baby laughter.  I wish you could hear this picture.

PhotoShop Tip - PBE Action Set

I recently got this email....
"last night I started using the action sets.  wow!  it is so exciting to see what the difference in my photos!  Makes me want to go back, edit and reprint all my pictures!"

I've created a little video tutorial on all my 
tricks and tips to run and adjust my action set.

My action set includes 4 actions: Color, B and W, Vintage Azure and Soft Color.  It's like having me sit at your computer edit your photos for you :)
You can purchase these 4 actions in my
PBE action set for just $30.


Compatible w/ Photoshop CS. They also come with tutorial on how to apply actions step by step in Elements 7.
(actions do NOT "run" in elements
however, they can be applied step by step.)
