Foto Friday

OR, Photo Phriday...whichever suits you! I have been having lots of fun altering photos and I seem to be stuck on Sepia as being my favorite. I use a very simple program called PhotoScape and I haven't even touched the surface of what it can do. My daughter, Marissa is very good at it, but in her absence, I have been playing.

Marissa is returning home tonight after a week long trip with the Seeds of Faith Youth Group to Kansas City. They were not allowed cell phones, so we have lots and lots to catch up on! I can't wait to see her!

....During Bible School, I took a couple of photos with my friend, Sandy. She is a photographer (, and an amazing one at that. She is also my former student, my Christian sister and my friend, and I think she is just so gorgeous, inside and out and I cherish our friendship, which began somewhere in the 1980s when she was a student in my art class.

We definitely had the hair going on!

Beautiful Sandy- Senior Picture

Still a a beauty. That Todd is one lucky man!!

20 years later!!!! YIKES!!!
Sandy took a "Senior Picture" of me and I altered it a bit. The sad thing really IS a SENIOR picture!

So happy to have Beth (Carolan) McSpadden and her beautiful girls home for bible school.

Double Double Trouble...both sets of twins at our church will be in preschool in the fall.
Have a blessed weekend! Hope you enjoyed my PHOTO PHRIDAY!
Faith...Family...Friends....that's really what it's all about!

Hi Carol...sorry I haven't been over for a bloggy-visit in awhile! Love the pictures...and you look great. Don't kid yourself with the SENIOR picture...I love it! (Loved the great 80s hair too!)

We just finished our bible school. The first one we did was an outreach and our theme was Creation. This one was at our church and the theme was The Names of Jesus. It was great. They built a castle at the front of the church. I had the 8 year olds and there were about 15 in my group. I think we had more than 150 children attending...and it was great fun! Huge blessing.

Hope you enjoyed your bible school as well.

Love to you...
