Pretty exciting day for Kate... she won tickets to see Sugarland and her favorite band Little Big Town this Saturday from Thunder 106.3 in NJ. They also included a "Meet and Greet" which put her over the top!

Congrats Kate... I can't wait!

Texture Tuesday

134/365 Classic
Originally uploaded by maggie_gem

I've enrolled in Kim Klassen's Photoshop Skinny-Mini course to help me get the most out of the Photoshop Elements trial I downloaded.

I haven't really ventured into the post-processing realm until now and it is stirring a new inspiration for photography. This is a good thing, since I seem to be falling behind on my 365 Project.

For today's processing I applied Pioneer Woman's Vintage action, then applied Kim's Pour Vous texture at 75% soft light. What do you think? Have you used Actions and Textures in processing your photography?

Spring has sprung and with it the travel bug has arrived! While dreams of seeing the world struck last week, the reality is I'll be staying local this year.

Don't get me wrong there is plenty to explore and see right here close to home. New Jersey and New York provide for some very interesting backdrops. I just need to plan some trips and then get out and do it!

Hopefully there will be many day trips now that the cold and snow are gone... looking forward to the sharing with all my friends!
