Beach Adventure



This photo was taken while we were vacationing in Seaside, near Portland, Oregon, in August 2006. Only a few months old at the time, Maxwell was strapped to the front of me in a Baby Bjorn while I snapped the shot. I remember it being very windy and chilly, but Madeleine still loved running in the water along the beach with her daddy.

First Effort for Digital Scrapbooking!



I've been trying to learn how to create digital scrapbook pages with Photoshop Elements. The results are not bad, if I do say so myself! And I didn't do any retouch work on this photo, so I anticipate to have better-looking pages in the future. I was suprised at how easy the whole process was.
