Have been inspired by many DIY advent/service calendars on pinterest and am very pleased with the one my daughter & I were able to put together. Hope this becomes a wonderful learning tool and family bonding tradition.

snapped this photo on the way to trick or treat, because my daughter loved the pretty colors of the sunset.

Testing out Totally Rad photo recipe

We recently gave Totally Rad a test run and ended up liking it so much, we bought it, using their 15% off coupon code found on their FB page http://www.gettotallyrad.com

Their Rad Lab product makes retouching photos super easy and down right addicting.   It’s so easy to use you can get carried away with all the tweeks you can play around with. If you find a set of tweeks and stylets that you like you can even save them as a “recipe”.  Saving it creates a special file, which makes it easy to share for those already using Rad Lab.  It also saves it within Rad Lab’s history, so you can easily click it again to apply to your next photo.

Here’s one I made this morning, that I’d like to call Yipppeeee!!!

about the picture:    my little almost 3 year old loves to come up with surprises for me.  sometimes she just pulls my hand and zips me away to her show and tell, I don’t have time to set up my digital camera.  so, these special moments sometimes don’t get the best photo memory.  this time she set up a pretend picnic for me. geez i just love her to pieces.  especially those toes of hers.  well, using Rad Lab’s awesome stylets and tweeking the intensity of each brought this special picture into the light.
