more edits

I was trying to do a couple of upclose portraits of the girls to frame
and hang up, so this is what I cam up with. : )
I just changed it to sepia, added contrast, then on some I just put a
foilage stamp, and the other two I just added a white gradient, and
then a vertical line texture to antique it a bit. Now I need to chose
which ones to use! I already printed the foilage stamp ones before I
did the others, but I like all of them. Thats where you and husbands
come in. Which are your favorites?

Little boys

Here are some from a photoshoot I did a couple weekends ago. These
little guys were soooo cute in their 4th of July outfits! I am so glad
I had the opportunity to do this. Even though they were wiggly, I
think we still got some fun shots of them. : )

wyoming trip

just a couple of what I took on the trip, it was a great weekend, and
loved getting back into the feel of the wyoming air. The wind rivers
are so beautifull, its places like that, that make me wish I had a
better quality camera, but I am sure I will be there someday. : )

I found a cloud stamp.

Gimp Brushes

I did this with the gimp brushes too.

So fun!!! Gimp brushes that I found

So my very talented friend Stef, from Roper photography, has been
taking a class on learning different techniques and things with
brushes for photoshop. It all looks so fun!
I have Gimp 2 that I have been learning for a little while, and it
doesn't have very many brushes at all. It does a lot of stuff, but I
am sure its not anywhere close to photoshop, but while I am saving up
for a DSLR, Gimp will do. So I decided to see if they had any free
brushes to download for Gimp, and I was pleasantly suprised!

I put a lot on this photo, just for experimenting, so for starters I
found a bunch of water brushes, which made the water spots, then I
found the butterfly ones, and the foilage ones, and also if you look
close by the top right corner, I found one that almost makes it look
like there is a clear layer of plastic being wrinkled on the picture.
I think it was made for a more misty looking picture, but I wanted to
try it anyway.
Someday, I will have the cooler photoshop stuff, but this is pretty fun for now!
You should check out Stefs talent, she is amazing! : )

our weekend

I just thought the look on her face was funny. lol

cute Kimbers!

She kept wandering around, didn't realy sit in her seat much, but she sure enjoyed herself. : )

This was her favorite spot to watch the game. She is getting so tall!

She had to check it out from this view too : )

She is going to hate me for this picture when she gets older. lol, poor Kass, kids don't care about wedgies right?

I love that one of her going down the slide all tricky like!

having so much fun!

Finally getting to eat.

I caught this sunset on our way to the drive in theatre. This picture doesn't do it justice, it was so beautiful, I wish I could have had a different angle, but the only way I caught this was actually when we went up on a hill. The rest of the way you couldn't see it.

My garden!!! Where the stick is, I planted some father beans too!

I enhanced the color on the tomatoe a tiny bit, just so it didn't blend in so much. I am so glad we are getting so much produce!

I believe these are radishes, or carrots, whichever grows faster. I learned a good way to plant them is together, they even eachother out.

these are cucumbers and below them is our lettuce crops which haven't emerged yet.

We went to a baseball game for hubbies work party on friday, then on
satureday we had a little bbq with a couple friends. I love
water/summer pictures! The colors are so fun!
Also, my garden in growing so much!
