SL Reveals, a Photo, and some News :)

So let's start with the reveals for ScrapLovers. We were working with Cosmo Cricket this month. For some reason I have a hard time with Cosmo Cricket. Don't get me wrong...CC has fabulous lines, but I never seem to be satisfied with my personal work when I work with them. And (you may remember this) the paper line I got to work with this month was "Ever After" but I received the embellishments from the "Girl Friday" line which made it a little more difficult. Anyways, here's what I did to finish off my DT work for April...



Moving on to photos. I do tend to edit my photos before I use them (just little things like adjusting the colors or contrast), but I am no pro at all! Well last night I took on a big task (I thought). See this WAS one of my favorite photos:


It is from our honeymoon. Well when we moved from Idaho to Colorado...it got ruined. Somehow it got stuck to the glass frame it was in and then we apparently tried to rub off some stuff that was on it...and ruined it even more! Last night I sat down, scanned it into the computer, and tried to fix it. Now it still has problems, and I know a lot of people could do much better than I, but here is how it looks now:


Amazing difference, huh? Like I said it still has issues, particularly around my mouth (that was the hardest part for me), but I am happy I was able to make it look better. I basically just used the clone tool in Photoshop to fix my photo.

And last, but certainly not least...

Did you see the latest news??? Check it out here! :)

You did great fixing that photo! I just got some of the CC papers (Girl Friday) and I love them. You did a great job on those layouts. I have many manufacturer lines that I have trouble with myself.

Congrats to you on the Design team! Good job on the photo! That would be so tough having the embellishments for one line, and the paper for another. The embellishments for Ever after are amazing too, you would have loved them!
