Playing with my New Toy

Happy New Year!!!

I meant to post before this but have been having too much fun playing with the kids and my new "toy", Photoshop Elements 7. I've been wanting this program for a long time and finally used some Christmas money to get it. There's a lot to learn with this program but it will be worth it. Learning this program is one of my goals for 2009.
Here is a photo I took a couple of years ago, that I played around with.

Love the new color. It might not be realistic but hey I like the brighter more vibrant look.
Then I applied some filters and got these next two looks. A quilt or fabric like these would be really neat.

Kara goes back to school tomorrow but Alex will be home another couple of days. He spent the second half of Christmas vacation sick. Poor kid!!! Went from a fever and chills to a bad cough. He is getting better but still not his best. He went to bed before 8 tonight (on his own). This from a kid who will try and get away with staying up as late as he can.

The Fiber Divas are getting together this Wednesday for our Christmas party! Our date before Christmas was snowed out. Hopefully Wednesday will be good weather! I haven't looked at a forecast in a while. I'm really looking forward to this, we haven't gotten together as a group for a long time - can't remember when.

It's almost midnight now, so I'd better get to bed. Lately, I've been finding that late at night when everyone else is in bed is a good time for me to get some things done. That will change when I go back to work! I really enjoy having quiet time by myself.
