It's all about ME!

At least over at it is! This week, the challenge is 'Self Portraits'...Well, I hate having my picture taken, so that was a challenge in itself, lol...But, add in my 3 girls, and my self portrait was a breeze :0)

My kids are a part of me, and I am a part of them, so this just 'fit' for me, as a self-portrait :0)

So come on over to and see all the entries this week...and while you are at it, enter your own!

Love that Shot-Faces

This is my middle bit, she will soon be seven years old!! Yikes! Where does the time go :( I take lots of photos of my kiddos, but this one speaks to me. This IS my girl, this photo captures her spirit so well! Spunky, happy, a bit of a tomboy...the perfect combination of sugar and spice :0)

I took this in my driveway with my Nikon D90 and my Tamron 28-75 2.8 lens. I processed it with CS5. My processing on this one was pretty simple, as are most of my photos. I cropped, sharpened, adjusted levels a tad and then did my black and white conversion with an action. I think it turned out perfect :0)

Chalk play

Over at this week, the theme of the weekly challenge is 'Chalk'...well just last week, our homeschool group did a group study on clouds. After looking at clouds, and learning about clouds, the kids got to draw some clouds. They used white chalk on blue is what my baby girl came up with.

I hope you come over to and enter a 'Chalk' entry of your own!
