SPT

Lelly posted a oh- so -sad -note, about taking a blogging break and said she wanted to see a good photo of everyone. She put this challenge up for the SPT
"so, for next week, a simple challenge. take a few moments to take a great self-portrait. fix your hair, freshen your lipstick, wear your favorite shirt. get outside, or stay inside, but take the time to find a shot that you love."

well I tried....











APRIL FOOLS!

Jay helped me with this, and said it will be his new photo of me-

*****edited**** to add the original photo- just to laugh and show the comparison

Thank you Lelly! I was so sad at first thinking of not having this SPT everyweek! I have come to enjoy them and look forward to the challenges! I had even decided I would just have to go check out some of the older ones from before I had joined in and do those!
And then last night, I wondered aloud to Jay...maybe this is all an April Fools Joke??!!!
Hooray it is! I was so happy to check and find out this morning that it I was fooled!

on another note...
I have had a few people ask about the spt logo-
I am totally fine with anyone using them....I will post a link on the side if anyone is interested.
I replied to a comment from Bren on how I do them saying something about my husband helping me, and that I was pretty clueless when it came to this, and that we were using adobe photoshop.
Well, that just shows how silly I am. We don't use photoshop- its indesign...
My husband is getting ready to start teaching how to use this. I think I am going to attend the class!

check back later today...I have a fun prank to play on my family- (and I am sure they will have some for me!)

you crack me up....Kip[singing while typing a poem on his computer] Your sandy hair floats in the air... To me it's like a lullaby... I'm just flying by... Oh so high... like a kite... tied to a skate...
love it!

I love the hair!! So Sexy! And I can't tell you how excited I am that you are going to have SPT creations on the side.. I want to join the class! I am so blonde on computer things..

Funny picture! I wish I had thought to take a funny photo of myself. I seriously tried to get one with me looking "just right" and found it impossible. It would have been more fun and certainly less frustrating if I'd gone for an April Fool's type photo.

Becky said...

Soooo funny! And creative. Love the awesome hair :)

I love the first photo. I was sure fooled with the first photo. I'm terrible with April fools jokes, I didn't play a one! Anyway, great self portrait!
