In Photos Gallery U Boutique Fairy Garden Ball



 Why, hello, there!  I know what you are thinking: “It’s Wednesday!  What are you doing posting, you over-achiever, you.”


Well, I am trying a new feature here at Mommy on the Spot.  If you haven’t heard already, I am writing for the Detroit News MichMoms blog.  A lesser known fact is that I am trying to teach myself Photoshop Elements 10.  My sister-in-law Brandy, who is a super-talented photographer, has been very helpful in teaching me a few things, so now I am going to practice them until they become easy for me.  So I had the brilliant idea of (hopefully) tying together my post at MichMoms to a blog post here, but somehow trying to fit in practicing Photoshop.


And, ta-da!  That was the birth of my In Photos feature.  I will be posting a photo here that ties into my MichMoms post. 


I welcome any and all critiques of my photoshoping skills.  In fact, please tell me what I should be doing because I am struggling with this program.


Also, since I am on the topic of favors, pleasecheck out my new MichMoms blog post and show me some comment love.  I would ever so appreciate it!




And now I present to you a photo taken at the FairyGarden Ball held at the Gallery U Boutique in Royal Oak, Michigan.

hmmmm I actually like the coloring of every thing in picture B but I like the girls coloring in picture A.
I need to learn to use photoshop so I will be visiting all your posts on this for sure!

Thanks, Kerry! The skin tone was the hardest thing for me to do. The eye dropper made the whole picture too green. I must have been doing something wrong.

Thanks so much for the tag! I had fun teaching :-) And great job on the picture! Love the crop. It really helps you focus on her and not what's going on around her.
