i heart faces photography: week 26 - pet photo challenge

I've decided to enter one of my favourite photos of our younger Dobe, Milo, for the photo challenge at i heart faces this week... since the boys are my primary photo subjects, I have hundreds thousands plenty to choose from, but this one is a favourite:

Yes, he has slobber on his ear from his recent romp with his 'brother', and no, he's not looking at the camera, but this is Milo.  Milo is quite laid back & easy going, and he just likes to chill with his stick (as long as someone is watching him chill - he HAS to be with us!). He has beautiful brown eyes and is such a loving addition to our family... we are so lucky to have found him!

Don't forget to head on over to i heart faces to check out the gallery of submissions for this challenge - so much cuteness in one place!!

fix-it Friday #59...

I've been lurking over at the i heart faces blog for quite some time now and, every Friday they post a photograph that could be improved upon for fix-it Friday. Here's my take on the photo of a little sweetie they posted for fix-it Friday #59:

Here's the original photo:

Here's my take #1:

& take #2 (using PW B&WBeauty action):

Please keep in mind that I am just learning to feel my way around PSE 8, so these are both very minor edits, and the second photo uses PW B&WBeauty action.

Basic Grey goodies...

I was supposed to be cleaning up my workspace, but then I uncovered found unearthed rediscovered some of my BG Origins goodies that I had not yet had time to play with:

Origins just might possibly be my favourite BG line to date! I adore the colours (What... green & brown?!?! Go figure, eh?!) and stocked up big time to use it for my wedding album since the colours are just perfect for that!

more cutie pie pictures...

This is little Mr. M, and he was such a great sport modeling for me at City Park a couple of weeks ago... what a cutie!

And here is little Ms. C at 4 months old... look how cute she is:

On the 2 photos above I used PW's Black & White Beauty action for PSE8, and below I used PW's Lovely action.

twice in one day...

don't fall over with surprise shock excitement...

Another previously uninked HA background-sized stamp... this time using SU! Close to Cocoa and then misting with water on watercolour paper.

stamped today...

using some new Hero Arts goodies that had not yet seen ink (I know, some of you have just fallen off your chairs... I have too many stamps that have not seen ink yet, and I have resolved to resolve that!).  I love that cloud stamp... and the grass was made with my MS Fringe Scissors!! This card was totally inspired by this cute card from the fabulous Mariana Grigsby!
