Lights, Camera, Snap + PS

Eating breakfast, I stared at the magnet on my fridge. POP! went the light bulb over my head.

 Snap! went the shutter and Think said the Brain, why don't you "Cut That Out"  and Photosho it!

 First Try
Second Try
Third Try


 Fifth Try

And Sixth was the birth of my header today.

Do you have a favorite or no favorite is an ok answer also..... I will NOT cry if you say things like "how childish" because that is what I felt like "playing" like a child with a color book and crayons.

and I close with?????
ROPE + DECEMEBER 24TH = The Knot Before Christmas....

I like the last one - and what I would say is that you have patience. Sandie

Remington said...

I like the last one. But I love all the creative ways you do things....I like the way you think, my friend! BTW, funny joke....thanks for the smile!

George said...

Although I like all of your 'tries', I think you picked the best to use as your header. You are really getting expert (and good) at Photoshop.

I like them all, Sandra, but my favorite is the FIRST one. Mary and Joseph are the centerpiece ---and the main part of the photo... Just my crazy opinion.

Hugs,
Betsy

The second and third pictures, without the candles, just the yellow and blue are outstanding to me!! I think you should have saved them as headers. I like them equally wuth the candle ones. My favorite candle picture is next to the last, where the manger is bigger and covers the whole picture. But these are ALL great and I could not do anything near like that myself. Coloring was always relaxing to me, and the photo playing is coloring for adults!!! My DIL wanted some kind of photo editing program for Christmas, but wasn't sure what she wanted, and I don't know the first thing about them. One would do me no good, because you have to be talented enough to use them and make pretty pictures.

Pure genius that's what I say. What a great idea. I personally like the last one or your header.
At first I thought you enlarged it in photoshop and then did a black cardboard cutout and then sat it on the table. That would look nice too.
I love playing with stuff like this. takes me back to those crayon and coloring book days.

You are just so clever, Sandra. I can hardly stand it! Very nice.

Sunny said...

You are so creative! Personally, I like the third one the best, I love the color and the lighting; and there are no other distracations...just my opinion :)

I wish I could take some lessons from you!

LC said...

First thing when I saw your header, I was wondering how you did that. My next thought was, "Sandra will let us know." Well, I enjoyed your sharing the multiple tries, which were all excellent in their differences. But i am lost on how you did that with PhotoShop. One day hubby and I will purchase. Then I will be bugging you with questions! :)

Fifth try is my favorite. Enigmatic and through provoking. And, I'm referring to the photos--not your joke!! = )

Best,
Bonnie

Hope said...

Maybe second and third..but I like them all Mrs Claus- Glad your enjoying yourself, it's the way it should be-

Stacey Dawn said...

I love the 2nd one the most because it has a little halo over baby Jesus head! They are all beautiful and am so glad you had fun and created these. I want to know how you did it!

I like them all. Inspiration can come from simple sources, a refrigerator magnet can produce a beautiful header photo. We just have to keep our eyes and minds open to all possibilities.

Carole said...

I love the pictures.... very creative. I like all of them... hard to pick the best. Great idea for "keeping Christ in Christmas".

srp said...

My favorites are the first and the last one.... great job!

Catherine said...

I have a Keep Christ in Christmas magnet just like that. Got ours from the Knights of Columbus at church. Great job photoshopping it in the light scene.
