Photography Challenge

The Digital Design Den has black and white photography as the technique for the month in their Focus on Photography challenge.  I had to try this so I took some photos of sea shells and combined one of them with an older photo we took of the ocean.  I wasn't sure what to expect as I really like color, but it turned out better than I expected.  And in the process, I figured out how to use and process camera RAW files.

The black and white version:

And the color version:

I can't make up my mind which I like the best, so I'm going to print them both.  LOL

Heart of my Heart - new kit from Lady Bug Designs

Becky of Lady Bug Designs just put a new kit in her store - just perfect for Valentine's Day - lots of lovely pinks and hearts.  You can find it at the Digital Design Den.

Since I'm on her creative team, I was able to play with it and came up with three layouts in a short period of time.

This is my little grandniece when she was only a couple of months old.

This is my son when he was only a couple of months old.  I scanned the photo from an old slide.

And this is DH about 16 years ago.
