Here is the original
I kind of gave it a vintage look I guess. I applied two actions from Pioneer Woman. First I used Fresh and colorful and adjusted the opacity of the layers a bit and then I applied the PW Black and white. I didn't flatten the image first. the Light layer was highlighted and I just applied the Black and White action then adn this is what it came out as.
My second one is this:

Well, we dont have a beach anywear near us really....not a big one anyway. This past weekend we went camping at Jellystone Park near by our home and they had a small lake with a beach. I know this picture won't win but I am entering it anyway. :) It really shows off the goofy personality of my son, R.J. He is always a ham for the camera! Come check out the other great photos at I Heart Faces !!!

RJ- he is now a Kindergarten grad!! WOOHOO!!! He did awesome in school and we couldn't be prouder. He did Letchworth Splash all year and has come so far in his swimming. He also has taken Tae Qwon Doe and likes that as well. There is a break from that right now but will start up again in the fall. Right now it is summer soccer. He likes that a lot too!! RJ will be heading to a day camp at Beaver Meadows for a week and he is really excited! He will get to be outside and learn all about nature and that includes ANIMALS! His favorite thing! He has been busy hunting for toads while at summer rec and his coach/rec teacher calls him "the great white Frog hunter"! He is having a ton of fun even though our weather has pretty much stunk this whole summer. Rainy and chilly for July that is for sure. He will be going to MI for a couple of weeks to see his father nad family there. We will miss him but he should have a good time. The yare having an "RJ Bar-b- Que" while there (too cute) and going to cedar point! He will get to play with his awesome cousins Ben and Alex too!
Maddyn- ON the GO!! SHe is walking now and always wants to go! SHe is our angel baby and so much fun!!! We had her first b-day party at the lake and had a great time! SHe got such beautiful things. We are blessed towith a wonderful family and loving friends.
She hasn't liked the pool very much since it has been so darn cold. Maddyn is a super picky eater and it is very frustrating. I don't knw how she thrives... seriously!! Hopefully she will grow out of it and not be picky like her big brother!

Here is my entry for this week. The theme is HATS.
I chose this one of Maddyn wearing the sweater and hat that Grandma Blue made for her. We love the set and I always get compliments on it when she wears it. I always give credit to Grandma!!

Here is my fix for Fix IT Friday at I Heart Faces!
First, here is the original
here is my first edit:I used photoshop to edit this cute pic of this little guy. I am not that great with PS but I try.
First I adjusted the levels a bit then contrast, color and saturation. Then I applied an action from Coffee Shop ( I follow that blog so there is a link to it at the bottom of my blog) called Perfect Portrait. I basically just hit play and watch it to it's thing. At the end I tweeked the curves just a little bit and that was it!
Here is a second edit
I didn't do too much here. I adjusted the curves a bit and then applied an action called Childish BW magic Medium. I then cropped it and that is it!
