Best of Pals

WOO HOO & BOO HOO! Lesson 4 (our final lesson) is complete!! YAY! I spent some time this morning working on the lesson and learning some new skills. We learned to create the word and letter stickers straight from plain typed text, made a trapezoid shape to create masks and cool designs, extracted people from a photo with a white/solid background and all sorts of other fun things.

I had a blast taking photos of Brent and Sadie yesterday afternoon. (I shot about 100 photos when all was said and done...) We hung an off white sheet over our fence and I had them playing and goofing off while I shot pics. It was a totally fun photo session.

Here's the layout:

Here is how you get your dog to perform for the camera:



And here are some of the fun outtakes:

What a great hubby you have - to endure a photo shoot like that! I love the digital layout...wish I knew more about how to do that kind of stuff! :-)

Wow Erin your blog is great. I love the out-takes and I'm totally inspired to try to get photos with my son and his dog again; this time armed with treats. In regard to the pigsty issue I'm sure that creativity and tidiness don't go together. At least not in my house.Thanks for the inspiration you have given me.

Looks great! Be glad that hubby isn't camera shy! Most of the shots I take of mine...look like he's saying "You're kidding me right?" or "ok, get it over with" or even "ya think so?" LOL
