This month the Pink Paislee DT contributed to the Page Maps sketches!
Here is the sketch I was given:)
And my take on the sketch:
I used the Spring Jubilee Collection. My gosh I love this collection, it is definately my favourite! I found this super cute pic of Gracie and went crazy with the pink!!! I really loved this sketch and kept the design exactly to the sketch. Except for the top photos I opted for a banner instead:)

I thought I would share something else with you today.....my photo editing how to! Here is my before photo. I lightened the photo first in photoshop by going into Enhance - Adjust Lighting and then fiddle with the brightness and contrast. Ask me much more about Photoshop and I wouldn't have a clue........lol!!!!
For the next step I use the program Picmonkey . So simple to use and you don't have to download the program to the computer and it's Free!!! I play with the basic edits first. Adjust the exposure again slightly and then up the temperature to about 10 to 13. I will sharpen the picture slightly aswell. Next I will have a little play on the effects. My favourites would be Tranquil, Intrepid and Cross Process bearing in mind with these actions I fade it out at the 60% to 80% mark so it's more subtle:) It's really just about playing around and finding which effects best suit your photos!
See photo editing can be quite simple!! I am sure there are these options in photoshop, but I haven't worked them out yet!
Thanks so much for stopping by today:)
