Snap Happy

Of late my crafting has taken a back seat to everyday life.  I am trying to capture the moments that often pass by so that when my motivation returns I will have some projects to work on.
Yesterday I took the girls out for a picnic to a local park.  It was a great opportunity to grabs some photos of them, and we also had a quick stroll near the beach as well.
Here are some of my favourites:
The effects used on the photos come from the Pioneer Woman website, used in Photoshop Elements (for more great free actions try Rita's blog).  If you have PSE I totally recommend these actions - once they are installed, you open your image it's as simple as clicking the effect you want and selecting apply.  I did alter a few of the opacity percentages on some of the layers to get the desired results, but it's certainly much quicker than fiddling with trying to add each layer yourself.

As yet I have not completed my Week in the Life project.  I did manage to capture and document each day for the week, but so far I have only collated Monday and Tuesday.  I hope to have the rest done by the end of next week (once school goes back).  I will share it once it's done as it's the first time I've used an 8.5 x 11 format for a project.
