~SteamPunk Attempt~

I am loving the new Steampunk trend in scrapbooking, so I decided to take some pics to go along with some of the awesome upcoming papers that I've seen. Here is my daughter, Tyler, dressed up in a sort of Steampunk fashion. Again I used several different actions in Photoshop.

Thanks again for stopping by and God Bless!!

~Fun Shots with Rylee~

Rylee and I got this idea from a similar photo we saw somewhere online with a girl wearing blue eyeshadow all the way around her eyes. Not quite sure where I saw it, but it was cool and inspired us to do this. I played around with some of my actions to create different looks for different photos.
This first photo I lightened and used a warming action. I didn't add any extra details.
This one above I actually used an action from The Pioneer Woman site, called Old West. Then I adjusted the opacity.
This one above I call Sleeping Beauty. I used an action from the same site called Lovely and Ethereal. Then I did a soft overlay of color around her eyes.
I just fiddled with layers and masks on this one above and below. I also added a harder overlay of color around her eyes for the bottom photo.

I can't wait to scrap these!! Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!

~Some Scenery Photos~

Last year my family went to Yellowstone National Park and had a nice time driving through and seeing all the beautiful scenery and animals. Mostly we saw buffalo and some elk, but the land was breathtaking. Here are a few of the photos I took.

~Triple Birthday~

In June our household has four birthdays, myself included. So to not completely irritate my extended family, I do a triple party for all three of my June babies at one time. Then I will do something special for them on their big day. We ate at this pizza place, that has the tiny pepperonis, oh I love the tiny pepperonis!! Anyway the lighting was bad and there was this HUGE red sign that lit our entire area up!! So I broke out my new lens, a Canon 50mm f/1.8, a very inexpensive, must have lens!!
Not bad considering the light was not good, there was constant movement and I was holding the camera, so I am sure I was moving as well. Oh that cake has 2 lbs of vanilla mousse in it!!!
My Dad is helping my hubby light the candles. Did I mention that cake had 2 lbs of vanilla mousse in it!!

This is my hubby's Uncle Rocky!! It's VERY rare to get him in a photo!! He's a great guy!! Oh and don't forget the cake that has 2 lbs of vanilla mousse in it!! LOL!! Ok ok enough :)
