Finally getting around to playing in Photoshop...
Anyway, on this particular day the planets had aligned and my dear high school friend and her family were in Paris the same week myself and my daughters were. On this sunny, early summer morning was when our daughters would meet for the first time. We sat in a cafe only a block from the Eiffel Tower drinking our cafe au laits while our daughters chattered to each other planning out when we could see each other again. I remember that while there I smiled so deeply my soul sighed.
Now for how the effects on what I did to this photo...
The photo was loaded in Photoshop CS3 (because I have not yet mastered this so I have to start somewhere.) and I added a texture that I bought from the the very awesome Kim Klassen and her tutorials were so helpful. http://www.kimklassencafe.com/thecafe/ I could explain the tutorials but truthfully she rocks in that department. Plus you get the added bonus of hearing a slight Canadian accent when she says, "About." I then added one of my favorite grunge Polaroid frame I had purchased years ago from the Showit seminars I had attended.
Pleased with it and excited to share it I sent it to my friend before retiring for bed last night. This morning I woke up to read her responding email and again my heart smiled. Its nice to be reminded of the moments that are special to us and often times they are found in the details of our every day life.
