Learning

So I have never missed attending school. I don't miss the textbooks, the lectures or the tests. I am grateful that I earned my degree but I have not looked back since. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy learning and I love that at this time in my life I can actually learn about the things that I want to. I am anxiously waiting to get into Jessica Sprague's Photography class, but until then I am getting a lot of information on the computer. Every day I discover talented people who are willing to share what they know. One scrapbooker encouraged us to find a photo that didn't turn out so great. She said to mess with it and alter it until you get it to look not just good, but amazing. I found a blurry photo of Branson and his cousin Audrey. Not only is it not very clear, but their faces are blotchy and they look like they have ginormous foreheads. After tweaking it for over an hour...I think I can live with the results. It's like Photo Rescue 911!

What a great way to challenge the mind to think outside of the box and work at something from a whole new angel and perspective. Thanks for sharing Amy. Your thoughts and stories always draw me in and send me heading in a new direction.

So So So Cuuuuutttte!

I wanted to also comment back about the New Moon movie. Twilight was a rated B movie, New Moon is rated A-Loads more money went into making it! I didn't care for the New Moon book as much either till I read it a second time. The first time I read it I was in a hurry for Edward to JUST come back. So the second time around I really enjoyed the "Jacob" story line. I laugh, my son is the same age as Jacob and is in shape like him...My other son is Edwards age and looks alot like him!!! It's crazy. So Dr. Carlise is pretty much who I woo over! Ha Ha!

Audrey will thank you one day for taking care of her receding hairline.
I love the pictures you take of the two of them together btw!

you're right. Audrey's forehead IS HUGE in that picture. Glad you could turn it into something lovely.
