happy new year



so i'm a few days late with my new years greeting! hope everyone had a nice/safe holiday!
not much new here....although, i can report i've stuck to my new years resolution now for 4 days! you know, the traditional lose weight, eat better and exercise resolution....the one that usually lasts 2 weeks....hopefully this will be the year i stick to it and change my habits for good....
so i've been tinkering around a bit....just have a few projects to share... the layout scanned terrible, it isn't crooked in real life. then there is the valentines day card....i used a lunch bag and sewed around the 3 sides creating a pocket. then there is the large "fancy pants" flower in the oversized soup can. i used a foam ball at the bottom, hot glued in place and stuck the flower right into the ball. and finally i had to share the black and white photo i took of lauren. i still have so much to learn about my camer and using photoshop...i have the limited edition of photoshop so i'm not sure if i have all of the options that photoshop offers....but i did putz with the lighting etc...of the photo. not sure if it looks good or not....it's certainly not a "tara whitney" photo by any means....anyone have any tips or tricks they want to share feel free....

love the flower in the "pot"! such a cute idea. love the black and white picture of your daughter too. i'll vouch that photoshop can be overwhelming to figure out ... but with a little practice it gets easier (did i just say that?!?!).

love the flower in the "pot"! such a cute idea. i think the b&w picture of your daughter is adorable. i know how overwhelming learning photoshop can be ... i have elements and still don't even know half of what it's capable of. but with a little practice it gets easier ... did i just say that?!?!? lol!
