I ♥ Faces Week 27






This is my little slugger. I blogged these last week on my family blog. She makes this face all the way through her swing. We had to put away the aluminum bat because she hits the ball so far! Next year it will be game on for Madeline!

I used CS3 initially and then put in picnic to get the right contrast! 



This is my pet entry for this week. (Don't worry, we don't actually have a giraffe in the backyard. Although, it would be nice for mowing purposes)

MAX AND THE GIRAFFE
I added texture and soft light with CS3.

Oh my! These are wonderful! And kudos to you for braving that vicious swing to get such an amazing action shot. And where on earth can you go to get gentle giraffe nuzzles? How precious is that?! Love the processing, too.
