summer wedding

This summer on our travels we went to my nephew's wedding. Our girls were over the moon excited about it. What little girl isn't? I think they talked about it all summer. Yes, shoes and dresses make little girls hearts is sweet, but kind of crazy too!

Anyways, I have been very slow to load up any pictures. Life kind of takes over! Usually I am a SOOC (straight-out-of camera) kind of girl. I have photoshop elements but haven't done much with it. It really feels like a hard program to learn. Like giving birth and raising children, my version didn't come with an owner's manual. And I ask, "Just what are all those buttons in there for anyway?"

But not wanting to be put off forever, I thought I would try to do some fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants editting.

Here is the original:

And here is the editted version. I did something that blurred the background and then changed the picture to black & white. Not out of this world or anything...but I tried. I don't really get the "layers" in PE. Anyone understand that?P.S. If you happen to be blessed enough to be related to me or one of the people in these photos feel free to save them or print them for your own use.

It is all about the dress and shoes.
Now that I'm old(er) it's all about the food too...

I love real pictures. I can imagine how excited the girls were. When I was little a pretty dress and the opportunity to dress up was the most wonderful thing. I find I am too impatient to learn all the photoshop stuff. I would prefer just to take a good picture and leave as is.
