Faces

As far as blogging goes, this weekend was a wash. I spent a lot of Saturday typing as there was some work that I needed to get done so I could have today off. We finally purchased new furniture for our family room which means that the living room that has only contained a piano for ten years will now have our old family room furniture in it and we will then place the new sofa and love seat in our family room. Both pieces are reclining which means that all four of us can be comfortable while watching TV together. We also opted for leather since our dog seems to feel that he is now welcome on our sofa whenever he feels like it. I polled many dog owners and the feeling was unanimous that leather is very forgiving as far as pets go. We made our purchase from a liquidator store called "The Dump". Let's hope the quality of the furniture has no tie-in to the name of the store....

I downloaded some free elements actions - frames/3D effect and applied them to the two pictures of my kids. I like the effect, although it works better if the background is lighter than the foreground. I still think it worked well.




I really love exploring the possibilities with PS Elements. However, I think there is a lot of room for improvement in my photo taking too. Now when the kids were little, I did not have a digital camera. There is a huge difference in the detail that my old film camera got with the pictures than my new camera - I so wish I had this camera when they were little!

One of my biggest regrets in life is that I didn't buy a good digital camera and learn how to use it BEFORE my kids were born. I missed out on recording so many of their precious moments.

I love the framed pics Dot ~ really beautiful!

I have already decided that I am going with leather when it's time to buy new furniture. KV

KV, I will let you know how I make out with the leather but I have a really good feeling about it.
