would you like to win a pair of night vision goggles for a gift? If I win, I think I'd give them to my husband...don't know what he'd do with them exactly, but sounds like fun, right? Check the giveaway out at Frugal Upstate. By the way, I think I might have won something. Not something terribly cool, but hey, winning is winning, right? I think I won a second place prize of some kind of mommy and me yoga DVD. They sent me an email, and I responded with my address. we'll see what it looks like.
I included a picture here of my daughter at church a few Sundays ago. I like the tree at church, and my daughters dress up for church, and it's difficult to get a picture at home. Plus, around the tree at home is cluttered with toys and such. So, I snapped a few pics over the past few Sundays. I did an action to this photo provided by the Coffee Shop Blog by Rita and added a texture downloaded from Flikr. The Coffee Shop has several free actions for Photo Shop Elements, and she gives good directions for installing them into your program. She also gives a lot of ideas of different things to do to your photos. I followed her directions for this picture.
One of the presents I'm most exited to give this year is to my older brother. A few years ago, he went to Thailand on a mission trip with his church. He's a pastor, and he spoke to many villages on this trip, took lots of pictures and journalled about his experience. I got a copy of all his pictures and his journal, and created a 20-page scrapbook of this experience. I sent the files out to be printed 12x12, since I found a site offering printing for .99 each. I hope it comes in time for Christmas. Here's a 2 of the pages.
