Before/After Blog Hop

Grab the button on the right side bar!

And yet again it's Thursday! This week has been a whirlwind and I am very much looking forward to the weekend! Business has been doing great, especially since the weather is gorgeous. And I have some more photography posts in the works.

The winner of last week's before/after blog hop is.... it's a three way tie!

Between Six Cherries, Life as Mum, and The Peanut Gallery. My personal favorite out of the three was The Peanut Gallery!

And the honorable mention is Flat Yeast Bread. I think her before shot is gorgeous!

*This week for the voting please just add the number by their blog name on the mcklinky list in the comment section. That would make it somewhat easier. :)



I used cs4!

I'm excited to see who will be linking up! Remember to come back and vote in the comments who is your favorite!


  1. I don't see the McLinky list for some reason. :(

    Note to self: one day purchase Cs4. I love being able to do different "effect" and I'm not sure that Paint Shop Pro x2 does that.

  2. Beautiful! I just love your work! The texture and color is just fantastic.

    I don't see McLinky either. :(

  3. Love the texture, still trying to talk Santa into getting me some new software, but having fun while my beta copy lasts. LOL!

  4. This is a gorgeous picture before and after. I left my blog frog open on the computer last night and my husband linked to you from it and was telling me about this blog that had fantastic pictures. I laughed and said I know, I'm joining her blog hop tomorrow.
    Thanks for hosting this! I had a lot of fun with it!

  5. I just love your editing. Very cool. The texture is so subtle too. Just lovely, as per usual. Wow..thanks so much for the shout out! I am flattered. Of course, I was oblivious to the fact that there was a vote! ha ha. Too fun!
    I absolutely love this blog hop.

  6. Wonderful edit! I've just begun tentatively stepping into the world of textures. Right now I'm hooked. : )

  7. I haven't started leaping out into the world of textures yet but this photo makes me want to take the plunge. Beautiful!

  8. As always great photo and edit!!

    I have two favorites this week. I couldn't chose between the them.

    My favorites are 14 and 17.

  9. I've got a three way tie! Yours is great! And I love number 14 and number 17.
    Make that a four way, I loved 18 as well, but think I liked the before as well as the after!

  10. This blog hop is growing every week, I love it!

  11. So check this out. I added my link and the http showed up twice so nobody can come see my post unless they search for me.

    I'm sorry. It won't let me go back in and re-add it.

  12. Christina I'm sorry I didn't notice that sooner! It's fixed now!! :)

  13. I'm so happy to have found your blog!! And, now after looking through all of the pictures, I realize I must use more than just Picknik.

    Toni @ Hemp & High Heels

  14. Love your texture edit, Monica. That's going to be my next lesson. Okay, I've finally seen them all. They are all great! But I think my favorites are #17 and #24.

  15. i liked several of these, but 14 is hands down the winner in my book.. loved the edit!

  16. I'm glad I found this blog hop! I just started a photography blog and I love playing with photos. Thanks for hosting and I can't wait to join...a bit sooner next time, lol.

    My vote is for #5 and #17!

  17. #14 gets my vote!! Gorgeous!! And as usual your shot is fabulous!!!

  18. I looked at them all two or three times, but finally made my choice: I'm going to have to go with #17 and #5. These were both so great!

  19. Oh my gosh, I like too many . . . #5 is so vibrant and colorful.

    #14 is gorgeous like a studio shot.

    #17 is so simple and beautiful.

    Wow! I don't know how to decide, but these are my fav's!!

    Love this blog hop and look forward to it each week! Thanks again for doing this!!

  20. So many great photos to choose from but the one that grabbed me was #6

  21. All of the photos were wonderful! I had such a hard time choosing. I pared it down to three: #9, #5, and #17.

  22. This photo is so beautiful. I just love photos with trees in them. The editing is great too. It has a vintage feel and I like that.

  23. I had a hard time as well... but I love that #14 was so "raw" (if that makes sense) and then it was turned into a beautiful portrait by the amazing editing skills.

  24. I am horrible at choosing they are all so good. I am so non-competetive so I get nervous thinking I have to pick just one. So I will just give my faves.
    I loved 5. I love blubonnets and these are just vibrant, gorgeous photos. I loved 14. Simply beautiful. And 20's before and after was amazing. ANd finally, 22 because I'm a sucker for vintage. I could go on...but I won't.;)
