I♥Faces-Over My Head

Well, it sure has been a long time since I had a submission to I♥Faces, but I happened to log on today and saw the category and immediately knew what photo I would use.  I just happened to be weeding through my photos over the weekend and saw this picture.  It is one that makes your heart stop the moment that it is happening, but brings a smile to your face after the fact.  I love it!  I hope you all enjoy it and stop by I♥Faces to see all of the other entries.

I Heart Faces - Photo Challenges, Tutorials and Tips

Pumpkin Picking

Sunday, we took our first trip to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin or two.  If kids show up in their costume, they get a free pumpkin and I just couldn’t resist not dressing Mallory up.  There was pumpkin picking, face painting, apple cider making, and just plain family fun!  We have a great time and here are few pictures from our fun morning.

A pumpkin just her size!

I ♥ Faces-Halloween Dress-Up

I Heart Faces

It has been quite awhile since I have participated in the weekly contest at I♥Faces, but I just happened to take some costume pictures this weekend and thought one would be great to share.  Meet my little lion:

And for the special pet addition-here is my dog when he was just a puppy.  I couldn’t help but dress him up then and I still try and do it now!

Fix It Friday

I haven’t posted a Fix It Friday in quite a while, but decided that it is time to get back into it.  Fix It Fridays come to us from I♥Faces.  Here is my fix it, but go the site and check out all the others!

I Heart Faces

The Original:

And my edited version.  I used Photoshop and started by lightening up the picture and did a little cropping to bring her in closer.  Then I went into my TRA and used Big Blue to bring out those baby blues.  Next I used Boutwell Magic Glasses and then used the EZ-Burn with opacity at 62%.

Too Cute!

I Heart Faces

Another week, another contest.  This week’s theme at i♥faces is hats.  My daughter is not a fan of things on her head or face, so trying to get this picture was a small battle.  Every time I had the camera up and ready, she would rip it off.  My saving grace with this photo is that the dog happened to wonder over and started to check things out.  She has a new found obsession with our dog, so she was absolutely thrilled he was around.  She forgot she had a hat on, thence the photo I got!  Thank goodness for distractions!!

Fix It

I Heart Faces

I’m starting to love Fix It Fridays at i♥faces!  I love experimenting with photoshop and learning new tricks and action recipes.  For this week’s picture, here is the original:

melindafixit31In photoshop, I started by adjusting the levels and doing just a small cropping.  I really like the rock around this little boy and didn’t want to lose that.  Then, using TRA I used Derelicte and Oh Snap! to give you my finished product.  Here you go:
