Edit Me 1st Time

I am always up for a challenge and when I saw the "edit me" on someone's blog, I clicked over to find out more.  The challenge is hosted by Branson Lee at "My Reflection of Something".  Apparently each week a photo from a fellow "blogger" offers one of her/his photos and we other "blogger's then have the opportunity to edit that particular photo.  The offeree (this week Stephanie from Behind the camera and dreaming) then judges the entries and a winner is chosen.  This week the winner wins the new book by Katie Evans entitled "The Key to Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer".  Sounds like a prize I would love to win and could most certainly use!!

Here is my very first entry to Edit Me.....(a sweetheart of an image to begin with)

This is the original:

This is my edit....
I do all my editing in Photoshop Elements 9....
  1.  I lightened the image slightly
  2.  Ran Florabella's Color Haze, Soft Urban action
  3.  Sharpened dress and hair with Paint the Moon effects.
  4.  Added slight vignette edging with PTM effects
  5.  And last, added the frame from Cottage Arts Scrap Frames 9.
