Falling for you.... for the 100000000th time

is in the air!
(thank goodness, and it doesn't hurt to have the cutest biker by my side)

Can you feel it?

We have been having great weather here for the past few days. We rode our bikes around the Zoo today and everything about it was beautiful! We got to see pretty much the whole entire zoo in a short amount of time. No more walking at the zoo for us! Thanks to my MIL for a great idea!!!

Every other person that we passed by said "Why didn't we do that?" or "Wow that is so smart." So enough about my day...

I want to share some tips with you as regard to pictures for scrapbook layouts. (for those that have Photoshop.)
I don't know about you but for me I have to be inspired by the photographs in order to complete my pages. If I'm not feeling them I just put them back in the pile and come back to them later. I usually pick out 1 element (or more) in the pictures that I really like and go from there.

The following are great ways to jazz up your pictures before sending them to print

* Add text to your pictures
* "Stamp" directly onto your pictures (use Photoshop brushes)
* Add frame around your pictures
* Change the color; sepia, black & white, vintage, and etc. (this will change the feel of your layout dramatically)

Last but not least ( in my opinion this step is VERY important ...)
**** Make sure that machine color auto correct isn't on, if it's on that means they will tweak the colors for you ****
Note to photo tech at Costco. Please do not mess with the colors of my photographs. Leave them alone or else!

Have a Happy Fall!

Now go out there and capture some Fall memories!
