A Bit of Whimsey!

I edited this photo for a photo challenge over at .

The idea was to use post processing to give a photo a magical or dreamlike finish. I LOVE the way this photo of my daughters BFF Kennedy tuned out. I used a couple of free photo textures provided by Love That Shot and VOILA! Magical! Below you can see the before and after!

...from a distance

My interpretation of "from a distance" for the I heart faces weekly contest!

…from a distance

Memorial Day - originally called Decoration Day – is a day of remembrance for those who died protecting our country. It’s also a day for coming together in peace and celebrating freedom. I think many people, especially children, who have no relatives in the armed forces, celebrate Memorial day from a distance. It’s just another day for a parade, cookout and fireworks – the beginning of summer! Teaching our children to understand the holiday by spending time talking to them about what Memorial Day means to us, as adults, allows them to get close and reflect on those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom! A very heartfelt THANK YOU to all our military who have served this country up close and personal!
