Spring is teasing us

I am on spring break. Winter is back again but that just gives me more time to play with photoshop right? Last weekend was really beautiful so we went to my hometown and visited a mine. The grounds were in perfect spring bloom so I took lots of pictures.

I decided to take a photo editing class before taking my next digiscrap class. I've only taken 2 of the 6 lessons so far and at first I thought maybe I'm not cut out for this but after the second lesson I decided this could be fun! I have lots more to learn but here is my start at photo editing.

Where have I been......

I have been neglecting my poor blog and my poor camera for that matter, but I have this new obsession. It started because I tried to take an online photography class, because I am not the kind of person to sit down with a manual and figure it out. So I found this website through another blogger mama and I was all set to take a class. The bad news is the class sold out in 5 minutes and I was never even able to log onto the website. (Must be a good class I'll be trying again in July.) Since I wasn't going to part with a largish chunk of change to take my class I decided to explore other classes and found a beginning digi scrap class and dove in head first. I have been wading around in photoshop figuring things out on my own. Sometimes I have wanted to throw my beloved laptop across the room. The class was super easy because I had been mucking around for months. I found easier ways to do just about everything I have tried and found things I had no idea were possible. I am so ecstatic and ready to forge forward and take the second class. I am sure that this is where you will find me on my Easter vacation.

These two layouts are the fruits of my class.
There were four altogether but these are my favorite.

Now I need to take some new pictures so I have new material before my next class. My little one better get well soon so I can take her out and annoy her with my camera.
If your interested here is the website I bought my class from.

What is better than some more fun with our friends....
Free reign of all the art supplies one could ask for
Nothing was off limits nothing one couldn't touch
Just pure fun.
We all had a turn at the easle.

Oscar paints with style.Maya
Table o' sand.
And James leave it to my daughter to find the only train in an art studio.

Just want to bang on my drums all day.

I did say all day.
Had lots of fun. Can't wait for next time.
