A shout out

I feel the need to discuss something VERY important!  Every day my blog followers grow and my posts are receiving more comments which is super exciting to say the least! Seriously, I love every single comment that I receive!  What’s most exciting, though, is to know that I am actually posting content that is interesting to all of you!  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!  So, where am I going with this?  Good question!  In addition to leaving all of my commenters comments on their blogging sites (I like to show love too), I wanted to do something a little extra to show my appreciation.  I actually copied and pasted every single comment that I’ve received in 2012 into an Excel spreadsheet then sorted by name to see who my most dedicated followers were.  I wanted to make mention of them in this post! 



to all of my lovely commenters below!
You have no idea how truly appreciated you are!

I also wanted to link up the shot below to the following photo challenges.  I love this shot!  Her eyes are just talking to me!  “Isn’t this scarf beautiful on me mama”? 

That would be a BIG “Yes Baby, that scarf IS beautiful on you”!

The next shot was provided by Liz LaBianca Photography for Fix-It Friday over at I Heart Faces.
The challenge is to take this already lovely shot and edit it  Fix-It.
How adorable is this lil’ guy?

Recipe cooked up in PSE:
1.  Brought back the details in the blanket.
2.  Brightened his cute little face and arms (slightly).
3. Used a eye pop action on his eyes.
4.  Sharpened his eyes, nose, and mouth slightly.
5.  Added warmth to the entire pictures except his face and arms.
6.  Adjusted the reds in the wagon (so that it would look more red).
7.  Adjusted the midtone contrast.
8.  Used the spot removal tool to remove some spots on the left hand side of the picture.
8. Resized for web.
