2/12/2012 UPDATE: So here's the thing. Hubby & I are getting a divorce. I'm not advised to blog during this time so... Still on hold here. Will blog again when I can, I miss it so dearly. :)
I can still be reached via email: theunexpectedworldofmommyhood@gmail.com Thanks everyone for your prayers and support at this time. The going is tough, but I am tougher and know a better future is waiting. ~ Meg :)

9/26/2011 UPDATE: My blog is "on hold" for a little bit... there is A LOT going on around here {so there are no worries, everyone is healthy!} and I'm really just not ready to blog about it. I will be back. Thanks for understanding!! :)

Touch Up Tuesday with The Paper Heart Camera

Touch Up Tuesday's at the Paper Mama
~ Touch Up Tuesday with The Paper Heart Camera ~
I edited this picture a while ago intending to use it for something and never did. But I really like the way it turned out so I shall share it today. The original was pretty crummy. I didn't make sure to get great family photos in the hospital (oh, if I could only go back in time!) so I was glad that I was able to edit this into something I liked.
~ Before ~

Yikes! The brightness is terrible in this picture, you can hardly see the one baby's face. I squint every time I see this.

~ After ~Much better. It's darker ~ almost as if there wasn't enough light ~ but I think it's a good dark. I like that Hubby's shirt pops out and that I can finally see both of my babies' faces. I think the blurriness around his head is also a little better in this edit.

Different edit. But still cool. I like the color touch up best.
Fun! Sorry I don't have the steps I took to editing these. You'll just have to figure that out yourself! ;)

Share your Touch Up pictures over at The Paper Heart Camera!


  1. I actually really liked your before. It captured the memory and that's what's important. :)

  2. Thanks Ashley!! It totally captured the memory and the look in my husband's eyes. :)

  3. Question: I came back from vacation and In A Yellow House is now by invite-only???

  4. I like them both. Great job!
