Fix-it - Friday

As you may know from reading my profile, I am a teacher and this was our first week back at school.  As I was driving home (at 7:00 PM on a Friday!) I excitedly remembered that it is Fix-it-Friday.  Photography is great stress reliever for me, so I came home grabbed a glass of wine and worked on fix-it Friday.  (Note to self: Complete fix it Friday and especially cook dinner before the glass of wine next week!)

Here is the original photo:

And here is my edit:

This little girl is beautiful!! and the thing I thought would be fun to change is the background.  I did a few changes to the color and added filter layers.  The biggest change that I made was to cut her out and put her in front of a different background.   I went through a streak of digital scrap-booking, so I opened the blues and greens looking for the perfect match, and I think that I found it!  I love the way that the colors matches her dress so perfectly. Hope that you enjoy.

....Now back to attempting to cut zucchini and make dinner.

I love the background! I have never been able to switch out backgrounds without it looking totally fake.... You did great!

Beautiful colors of the background make her stand out wonderfully! Great edit! I've seen a few where the changed background looks so fake...yours looks fab!
