Edit Me: Week 23

This week's Edit Me challenge is from Wendy Wright.  It was a super fun picture to edit.  It kinda made me want to take my boys to Disneyland...but when they're older.

Here is the SOOC:

When editing this, I envisioned it as a page in a scrapbook.  Both of the boys have such adorable expressions on their's definitely a moment to remember.

The first thing I did was make some adjustments in ACR.  I increased the blacks, desaturated the image, slid the recovery tool all the way up, and tweaked with a few other settings.  Then I brought the photo into PSE9 and cropped the photo.  I sharpened it, ran an Urban action, and then created the scrapbook page.

Our tiny BIG Life

Enjoy your week!
