~Fun Techniques~

Not only have i learned how to make Blinkies this week but I also played with my Photoshop and some girls form Treasured Scrapbooking *Thanks Holly* taught me how to make a Picture B&W with one pop of color! Oh I have wanted to do this for SOOOO long now! I am so happy! This is my first try and I love it!


I went swimming with the kids today at my gf's house....OMG it was a hoot. Its always fun I wish I could go 3 times week LOL I almost wet myself laughing every time I go!
The kids love it too.
Anyways we got to talking cause my roots are in some serious need of pinkin' and I told her I would post an old picture of me. This is me...bout 8 months preggers with My baby Gage.
It is sunned out a bit but you get the idea...pre-pink.
It always grew out dark in the roots then lightened up alot with the sun, it used to be a shade or two darker but you get the idea....a blast form the past man!

How cool is that! I always wondered how that was done. Always thought it would be fun to do a photo wall of B&W with each one using a different pop of color
