Fix it Fridays-iheartfaces

First time at doing this with Iheartfaces. I love editing, almost as much as getting the image itself. They publish the original and we get to play with it! That's the original above, here's what I did:

opened in Elements 7 ACR
made it a little warmer
bumped up the black
increased the contrast
opened in Elements 7
ran Coffeeshop's powder room 2
bright eyes
define eyes
did some cloning with low opacity under the eyes
ran Coffeeshops selective color
painted over the hat with low opacity brush
painted over eyes with higher opacity brush
ran the fog remover

I left the bruises on her legs. I have a soft spot for girlie girls with a few bumps and bruises.

Does anyone know of sharpen for web action for Elements? I'm saving up for PS4 but I'm not there yet!

Child Death Awareness and Remembrance

I am thinking about and praying for the mothers worldwide who have been touched by child death, through miscarriage, stillbirth and beyond. Although it seemed, at times, a grace too hard to bear, it *was* grace that allowed me to know my precious little ones, Lael, Rose and Joseph. Please pray for the moms you know who have been touched by a tiny person who left footprints on their hearts, but didn't stay in their arms.

This weeks challenge is excited. This is my sister and her kids welcoming home their daddy, her husband, our soldier and hero. This is excitement.

As an aside, anyone who gets the chance should go welcome the soldiers at the airport. Very cool, no matter what your political affiliations.
