Many moons ago, my mother-in-law asked if I would click a picture with the kids feet in big shoes and pair it with a favorite quote.
I never quite got around to capturing it until this past month...many moons later!
With Christmas breathing down our necks we found ourselves trying to think of the perfect gift for our mom.
Fortunately, I had some willing bodies, who actually enjoy walking around in shoes nine sizes too big!
Here is the before...
This was edited in Photoshop Elements and I used Coffeeshop's Color Block Action.
I plopped that baby into a hand painted frame by "moi" and had a real purdy little gift. In fact, I'm even gonna frame one for myself.
This is my beautiful Mother-in-law.
The word painted on the frame says "Inspire".
And now, because I want to inspire you...may I share an out-take?
I initially thought I'd only use S-girl for this photo.
I just couldn't get "Ole' thunder pants" to be still.
Before I share .... I must defend myself in a small way by saying that we rarely utilize our front door. Especially in the winter when D-man plows the top of our driveway and blocks the sidewalk leading to the front door with 5 feet of snow!
Hence, one can't be held responsible for not noticing the sorry condition of the pumpkins sitting on one's front porch.
Not really sure what I was thinking when I snapped this.
Perhaps I was thinking I'd get real cozy with the crop tool in photoshop!
Really..a pumpkin should last for at least 2 months in the frigid North, shouldn't it?
I'm sorry you had to see this.
Now run along and look at some more before and afters at Pixel Perfect.
