I had a lovely surprise waiting for me when I returned from my monthly outing to the Doctors yesterday Tuesday morning, An unofficial SOSF gift from my friends Penny and Toby at Natural Attrill Opening the small box I was greeted by a lovely pair of earrings handmade by the ever talented Toby and I have been wearing them ever since. Thank you again Penny and Toby for my ‘cheer up’ gift they really did put a smile on my face

Thank heavens for digital cameras after several attempts and lots of pics of my left nostril, i was finally able to get a pic with the earring in shot.

Work wise I have spent today working in Photoshop retouching wedding photographs. I would love to show you some before and after shots but I don’t yet have permission. The photos in question are lovely, but the groom has his eyes closed in one particular photo were the bride looks fabulous, so having flicked through the rest of the wedding album and found a photo were the groom is in a similar position with eyes open, I set about superimposing those eyes onto the photo that the couple want a large print from. I also spent a bit of time on the wedding group photos smoothing out clothes and removing blemishes. Finally put together a montage of photos from the day it self which I am in the process of printing out onto A3 premium glossy paper. These will be framed and given to both sets of parents as a memento of the day. I must admit I really do enjoy doing this type of work and seeing the couple involved faces when they see the finished product is priceless… And they say the camera never lies.
