It’s Week #8 of Fix-It Fridays at I ♥ Faces!

Still by far one of my favorite things to do during the week. I didn't feel well after an exhausting 11 hour day at work yesterday, so I'm a day late. But Playing anyway. LOL Click here to see all of the fixes!


And my edits using Photoshop CS3.

Brightened, and popped the color using a "soft light" layer, and upping the saturation.

Slight brighten, and a fun texture:

Black and white with a light texture:

Just for fun:

Parden me while I sob a little.......

I'm doing this today, because I think in 17 days, I'll be too shaken up to do it. My first born is turning 18 on the 9th of April. 18!!! OMG! Yes, Nick's birthday is after Ty's..... I'll have his post done on his birthday, I promise.
It's Nick's birthday that has me wanting to run away and hide. My first born. My baby. Is no longer a baby. Excuse the 1990's bad film scanned onto my computer as we go on a little photo spree here.

1 day old. Look at all that hair! He was so small. 0-3 month clothes were too big.

First steps!

1st Christmas (with Grandma)




17, almost 18

I ♥ Faces No Flash

Is it Monday already??? lol
This week's theme at I ♥ Faces is No Flash. Don't forget to check out all of the other fabulous entries here:

I took this one in my livingroom using my open front door and a huge window as my light. No flash :) One of my favorite photos of my daughter. It's taken using my husband's baby blanket as the backdrop. he got that blanket at his birth when his parents were stationed in Bolivia!

Where oh where???

does the time go??? Holy crap, I feel like the last two years have just flown by and I missed it. I was talking to my best friend tonight. We talked about her nephew turning 3 in July. Um, didn't he just turn one?? We talked about my 17 year old turning 18 in O.M.G. 18 freaking days! He's joining the military. OMG I think I'm going to have a heart attack. High school memories are becoming a blur. I feel stuck between two worlds. the past and the future. Yes, I know, obviously, the middle of that is the present. But I feel sometimes like I focus on one or the other, and forget to really live in the now. I want so badly to hold on to what used to be. And I worry so much about what WILL be. That I miss so much going on right in front of my face.

So here's to paying attention. To enjoying more of the little things. I savor every hug and snuggle from my little ones. Because, before I know it, they'll be fleeing the nest, too.

Okay, off to go have a panic attack. EEK!
