Mommy life: Siggy fun!

First, is it any wonder one of my pet names for this girl is Beauty?

Braska and KiKi are at Grammy's house for a few days while I have a weekend to catch up around the house and try to regain some energy and sanity (and hopefully catch up on horribly neglected blogs). Much thanks to Grammy and the gang.

Many of you are familiar with the term "siggy," referring to an image used in forums and message boards to show off your kids and announce who you are in a fun way. There are about a gazillion styles, and I'm new to learning about them, but tonight I decided to try doing one with a few particular effects I liked.

This is the first finished one. It took quite a while. The picture is actually a combination of two shots of the girls (one where K was smiling and the other had B I tried some tricks) with some fancy Photoshop action. I am pleased with it...not bad for the first try with this method. Doesn't hurt that these girls are so darn adorable...

If anyone needs a siggy, let me know. Now that I've worked out some kinks, the next round will go much smoother and faster!

    i hadn't seen braska updates in TOO long and just realized she'd been zapped from my bloglist...

    how about technological competence in you have some sort of intervention program?'re a clever one. TOOO cute.

  5. Wow! That is AWESOME! You are going to have to let me in on your secret. There have been a few heads I would've liked to have morphed on other bodies (kids and their uncooperation!) if I had the chance! I better watch my back 'cause your editing skills are great!

  6. She's beautiful! loved how you combined the two photos!
