Happy Fourth of July!

Click on the image for a bigger view.

My 4th was spent with Holly allowing me, a little of her time to take a few pictures. (love ya Holly)
This was her favorite so this was the one I worked on. We went out looking for white are light colored backgrounds because I knew I wanted to add some texture to the images.

After I was done, I came across the great video for adding blush and lip color to your images.
Here is the [b] school video. Do check it out!!
So of course, I had to go back and rework my final image.
I just love how I learn something new everyday and how willing everyone is to share their knowledge!!! :)

Another fantastic site I have come across is called lch design.
She has some really nice design items for sale!
This link will bring you to her blog, click to enter. I have been drooling over her images for a few days now. Take a look!
Perfect color and the sharpness is out of this world. How I would love to see a step by step from her! My friend Denise sent me there. (hugs to Denise!)

Hope everyone had a Happy day!
