Maybe it IS easy bring GREEN

It is the last day of March and there is snow on the ground.  {sigh}  Not much, but still.

I realize that in Pennsylvania we can see snow as late as June, but once Spring teases us with her warmer temps and beautiful sunshine and sprouting flowers/trees, I just don't want to see any more snow.  Although I will admit that the trees look beautiful with a fresh coating of the white stuff ... and I was fun to see my kids have a small snowball fight while waiting for the bus this morning.  But I'm really ready for more of this ...

Edited - again slight adjustments in ACR; Nice & Easy action by Ashley Sisk; Baby Powder Room action from The Coffee Shop blog (on the background only - to lighten up and remove wrinkles from sheet); clone out stray string on pedal and string between eyes (those were bothering me for some reason).  :)

Edited - slight adjustments in RAW, then Ashley's Nice & Easy action.  I'm not sure I like this one so bright.  If I had to do it again, I think I would tone it down just a bit.  I think I lost too much contrast in the flowers.

Bring on the greens and gorgeous colors that come with Spring and Summer!  I'm ready!
Really!  I am!  Please?  :)




I had mentioned on Monday that I wanted another GREEN photo but my model (aka Alex) was being uncooperative and I would try to get it and post today.  Well, he is still being uncooperative so that photo never happened.  Maybe in a few weeks when we are featuring friends/family.  We'll see.  {fingers crossed}

Next week's theme is UP.  Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes UP with.  :)
(I know, that was bad).
