June 23, 2011
I have a few favorite moments in my week. One of those moments is editing for Branson’s Edit Me challenge. It’s during these moments that I really let my creative juices flow. For this week’s challenge, Vic from A Cup of Freck (and also one of the amazing ladies behind For the Love of Blogs) is judging.

A couple of weeks ago, I participated in  Branson’s, over at My Reflection of Something, Edit Me challenge! Last week turned out to be a little busy…so I wasn’t able to participate, but I had some time today…so I decided to jump in. This week, Courtney of One Mom’s Perfect Imperfections is judging and here is her photo (taken during her recent vacation) for this week:This photo is so cute and really didn’t require much more than clean processing…but for purposes of this challenge, I wanted to step it up a notch and do something a little more...
