Blog Vacation

Not that I wanted to take one. But my computer died. My computer with all my photos, my photoshop, and everything else that goes with it.

In the past few years, I've signed up for bunches of classes over at jessicasprague.com. I've completed only a handful. Today, that ends! Today begins Photoshop Friday. Today, I pledge to photoshop at least every Friday, easing myself back into it with a bunch of quick lessons Jessica calls  ~  wait for it  ~  Photoshop Friday.

Today, I offer you installment #1


This is my girlie Katie and her bestie Alexa. They met as girl scouts, 6 years ago. (Don't worry gals, your secret is safe with me. I'm sure none of your friends read my blog!) Yesterday, Katie came home from visiting with Alexa with her hair dyed turquoise and her ear pierced. 'Cuz that's how girl scouts roll....
