Good to Wow!

This is SOOOOOOOO much later than I intended it to be! :-O But it's been a wild, crazy and hectic day. Had an awful start to the day...all before 12 PM...then later in the afternoon I had to bring our laptop to the repair shop (the backlight is out...I pray it's only a loose/disconnected cable and not the need to replace the WHOLE screen!)...anyways, I just now settled after taking a late afternoon walk with my boys to get a few shots for my project 365 since the last couple days I've been taking cell phone pics and now we're here restin and Dillon is eating his leftover kid's meal from Sonic!

Okay earlier in the week I shared my SOOC "Up" photo for the Good to Wow linkup over at Jill's blog. Now I'm going to show the photo with Ashley's edit for the week and then my own!

Reminder of the SOOC:

Photo with Ashley's edit:
april3-2upEDIT1
Applied the "warm sun" action from Kim Klaussen twice with different blend modes then the RT-4 texture twice with different blending modes and then a soft pink solid color layer at soft light at 8%!

My Edit:
april3-2upEDIT2
Adjusted the levels, darkened the blacks and lightened the midtones then ran Coffeeshop's "Velvet Truffle" action and flattened! Viola!

Here they are all three together!

Sorry I'm so darn late! Hope you enjoy! Off to edit today's photos! :D

I do love that velvet truffle action. I'm not sure when it will work with my photos, but I love it here. The texture edit is great, also!
