Cute outfit

I had Susan ask me a question in the post two below this one wondering where I got this cute outfit, Here is the link. They have some adorable hats too.

Just took the kids out to play, and thought I'd bring the camera along. I put Jaxen in his exersaucer, he seemed to enjoy it and the girls loved the fact that he was out there playing with us! Did these with the Remarkable set, true black and white and color set is subtle preset with the colorful action. I also used the 35mm 1.4L for these photos and I think I really like this lens, it's so sharp and contrasty. More later.

We went to the park last night, got some sweet photos of the baby and the kids. Here's a few of the baby while the kids were wading through the creek with dad. Although, the one of Jaxen in the tree isn't as unsafe as it seems, my husband was holding him safely there. Just thought I'd through that out there so no one is too worried. Love this baby.

Colorful Actions for PSE

Now available for PSE along with the Vibrant and Color Wonder sets, this set was specifically designed for those who use Photoshop Elements. The perfect solution to help you get the most out of your program. You just load them into your Effects menu and click on the action you want to use, the rest happens for you and I've left them unflattened with layers for you to customize and adjust to get the best effect.

I finally have them ready and tried to match them exactly. This set is a compilation of actions from my last couple sets of full photoshop actions, but for PSE.

Here is a list of all 14 actions in the set:
Colorful Kick
Give me Color
Darken Edges
Color Saturation
Soft Glow
Vanilla BW
Brazen BW
True BW
Creamy BW
Light and Airy BW
Turn the lights on!
Beautiful Sepia
Web Resize
Vintage Feel
Plus a tutorial on adjusting opacity and loading instructions.
The set is $25.00 like my other two PSE sets (Color Wonder and Vibrant).
I'm sooo excited about these, I think I really pushed some of the capibilities of Photoshop Elements! The Darken Edges is awesome, it darkens the edges of your photo, adding color and showing off your main subject. I think you all will love these!

It may look stormy...

A picture a day...

I'm trying to post a quick picture a day, I plan on keeping the post short and simple for the most part. I've been busy with the kids home this summer, trying to do some fun things and still stay on top of my housework. Summers are chaotic. More tomorrow!
