Yay!! Photo to sketch using photoshop

I have been playing with photo shop yesterday and I must say, I am hooked to it.
Last night, I sat on it until 1.00am and my husband had to drag me to sleep
because I have guest coming for lunch today!!!lol!!!
I woke up early today and been cooking since then.
But I got a little rest and so sat down to blog the edited photos.

This is the recent photo of my kids. I wanted to convert it into sketch and add a border.
I am so used to making layouts from sketch and I wanted to reverse the process.
Here is the result.
I love it.. Very cool!!!
I will start using photo shop more often now that I am comfortable using it and got over the initial fear. Its awesome, just that I will need more time or organise my day better!!

Today is a busy day for me with guests at home and heavy cooking Indian food. School starts on Monday Yay!!! I am so looking forward to it and so are my kids!!

Got to go, another dish and cleaning left.
Will put up today’s menu later.

Have a great weekend

Tamara’s card sketch and the card…

This is the Thursday card sketch at Tamara’s Sketch blog
I discovered this awesome blog for challenges and sketches recently.
Each day there is a different challenge. Love it.

And this is my take on the card sketch.
I have used cuttle bug and embossed the white card stock
and also the pram stamp piece is also cut and embossed using cuttle bug.
I normally go for brights but I made this for my brother and SIL,
who is expecting a baby in April this year. I am pleased with the outcome.

Thanks for stopping by
