I “Heart” Cookies

January 12, 2011
Last night, I noticed that the theme for this week’s Simplicity Photo Challenge was food. I wasn’t quite sure what I’d do (or if I’d do anything at all) but I figured that if the opportunity presented itself, I would certainly find something worth shooting.  Besides, I made it into Faith’s TOP 5 this week, so if you want to vote for me…that’d be cool.

I continue to be inspired this week and I haven’t even picked up my camera since Sunday (which means I haven’t done my Scavenger Hunt yet)…I’ve been having too much fun in Photoshop Elements (can you even imagine what will happen when I upgrade to CS5?). I had a couple of challenges this week that really inspired me. Captivus Living has presented a new Photoshop Challenge meant to encourage us to use photoshop tools that we may not have used before. This week’s theme was “liquefy” using the liquefy tool. I’ve been so excited about this prompt...
