My Heart Is Yours- Valentines Photo Challenge

The Paper Mama

I am joining Paper Mama's Valentines Photo Challenge today.  I have been practicing a lot with my photos and editing, which in turn has made me more comfortable and quicker with the camera.  So this challenge was a great exercise for me.  My husband and I don't usually use a lot of heavy Photoshop editing with our images, we like the natural and organic look, so I had to think outside of my elements a bit.  It was lot of fun!  I might have to do this more often.  The original photo is in the post about my Valentines Heart Felt Wreath



My son definitely has my heart!  It truly is amazing how much love you instantly have for that little person!  It is endless and bottomless!

Thank you Chelsey @ Paper Mama for having such an fun challenge.

Happy creating,

Alyson
