Busy Bee

Busy bee!  That is exactly what I feel like these days.  Since school has ended, I have been running the kids to day camps or entertaining them from dying from boredom.  We actually got to visit with some family in Missouri this past weekend.  It was great!

Anyways, I have been excited to tell you what I have been fiddling with.  I use Photoshop Elements to edit my photos.  For those of you who play in Elements, I am sure you have heard of Florabella.  I have admired Florabella Photoshop Actions just about forever now.  Well, I decided to jump in and buy a bundle.  It took me a while to pull the trigger because I usually never would spend that amount on actions.  I felt like I could justify it as an invest and savings by getting frame worthy photos I took instead of a professional photographer (at least that is what I am telling myself).

I thought I would share some of my pictures.  Before pictures are straight out of camera on Auto Mode.

I wish I could tell you exactly which actions I used within this bundle package but the combinations are limitless.  I spent hours fiddling with just these photos.  I literally could get lost for hours creating edits.  What is great about these actions is you can make adjustments on each layer.  I purchased Florabella TRINITY + Retouch/Workflow Brushes bundle.  I really do love these actions.  If you want to check out actions without making such a financial commitment, there are plenty of free actions for you to play with.  Check out The Pioneer Woman or The CoffeeShop Blog.

I would really love to know what you think of my editing.  Please comment.  I need input to make sure I am not over editing them.  Share at:
