Ready for the Little Ghosts & Goblins

Good Morning! We are all set for the little ones tomorrow evening. I am looking forward to seeing all of their wonderful costumes. We still have to carve our pumpkin & we will set up the fog machine tomorrow evening too.
I have a huge bag of candy all set to go also. I didn't dare buy it too early cuz you know what happens then....I dig into that bag & then I have to go buy another. Happy Halloween to all of you!

Journal pages & Paintover

Hello Wednesday! The sun is shining bright this morning after a couple of days of very dreary weather. It will push into the upper 70's today.
I am posting some journal pages today with the first involving a paintover that I did of myself when I was around 4 or 5 years old. I thought it was so cute until I attached it to the journal page & ended up with a WRINKLE in the paper. Oh well....such is life sometimes. This top one was done using paint texture magic & rub ons. The bottom two are primarily image transfers (with Sheer Heaven) rubber stamping & a wee bit of paint. The bottom two were done a while back but don't think I ever got around to posting them. I hope you all have a great Wednesday!

Differnt Layers with Photoshop Elements

Good morning! What a dreary looking Wednesday morning! Guess we won't be seeing the sun until this afternoon. I have a few errands today so that's ok.
Today's post is the same image & background that I adjusted layers on in PSE. You can see the very different variations you can get with one photo. I really do LOVE Photoshop! I have still been working on my visual journal with a few paint-overs also. I will post more of that down the road.
I hope you're all having a productive & enjoyable week. Happy hump day!

New PSE Creations... Pretty & Pretty Scary

Good Sunday morning! The sun is shining this morning but there's definitely that touch of Fall in the air. I love it! It's suppose to be a perfect 77 degrees today.
I have been playing with Photoshop Elements some more & have created this  lovely vintage photo over a free flowered background from another blogger. The hue, saturation & opacity have been tweaked. The 2nd is a free halloween image on one of my background pieces. I just love all the creepy halloween images out there. We will be decorating the yard next week to get ready for the big candy day. I love seeing all the little cuties that come trick or treating.
Enjoy your Sunday & GO STEELERS!

Halloween Scariness

Good morning all! Halloween is quickly approaching & it is time for some scary PSE creations. This one was created with some free images & adjusting the hue, saturation & opacity on PSE. I am not a big fan of Halloween but I love playing with the Halloween images. Hope you're all having a good week...Summer is returning to So. California today as we are leaping into the 90's!

Missing Dexter on his 5TH birthday

Good Morning! Today I am posting some journal pages of my sweet Dexter who passed away on July 4th this year. Today would have been his 5th birthday & I can't begin to tell you what a hole this has left in our hearts. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him terribly. There was a beautiful sunrise this morning & I managed to grab a shot of that too. We love & miss you very special boy!
