This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

But, it's just a small change . . .

We've spent several weekends this summer getting our former home in Indiana ready to sell again, after renting it out for a couple years.

much to hubby's dismay (he who loves the status quo),
has caused me to look around for things to change up around here as well.

much to my dismay,
it suddenly becomes very apparent this place we call home needs a little deep cleaning also!

to kill several birds with one stone I designed this little file to update our door coming in from the garage.

of course, necessitated cleaning said door,
Sparklin' Clean!
which led to noticing and cleaning several other areas in that same vicinity (think light switch cover, garage door opener, step, rug, on and on it goes!)

Also hoping that it,
being such a sweet little welcome home,

hubby won't mind the minor change to our door.

And maybe once he's gotten used to that I can embellish it just a bit more ;)
Gotta keep the man on his toes!

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days

I feel like I've missed summer this year.
Without a doubt we've had the hot days, the hazy days, the busy days and crazy days -
guess I've just missed a few of those lazy days!!

Was fun to take a little time yesterday to work on a Texture Tuesday photo transformation.
I decided to play with a photo of one of my summer-like souvenirs and Kim Klassen's Dream It texture.

Starting with my original in Photoshop Elements
Layer 1 - Cropped It
Layer 2 - Linear Burn @ 75% gives it more depth
Used eraser tool to remove some of the "burn" around the shell edges
Layer 3 - Linear Light @ 23% brings out even more detail & dimension
Layer 4 - Kim Klassen's Dream It Texture Softlight @ 100%
(used the eraser again to remove some texture over the shell)
Layer 5 - Like the shape of the text here - but difficult to read
Final Result - Text Font = Catholic School Girl Softlight @ 100%
