Before/After Blog Hop


I am loving the fall weather we have been having lately. And I can hardly believe Thanksgiving is around the corner. It's my favorite holiday!! But now on to the real reason we're here. It's blog hop time! 

The winner of last week's most favorite is Courtney Kirkland from Life Beautiful. Congrats girl! 

**Rules for playing along

  • Use only one picture for your entry. I know we sometimes get excited about sharing but how can we judge the most favorite when you have multiple pictures. 
  • Post your straight out of camera version and then your edited one. This is where you can really share the art of digital photography. 
  • Share with everyone the editing program and equipment used. You don't have to go into a step by step process but I know it's appreciated to see the recipe. 
  • What makes blog hops fun for everyone is when you check out everyone's entries. You are encouraged to stop by others' blogs and be sure to leave some comment love. 
  • I want the voting to be in your hands. So after the blog hop is shutdown (friday evening) come back and vote for the edit you liked the best. 
  • Be sure to link back to Pixel Perfect Blog so others can join in on the fun!

  15. Ladies who said they couldn't see the linky...what browser are you using? I can see it ok in safari and explorer. :( I'm sorry you guys can't see the linky. If I was more tech savvy I might now what to do. The only thing I can think of it being is a browser issue.

    Kel- I wish I could highlight my hair myself!! But I go to a salon and get it done. My hair is the one thing I splurge on myself. :)

  17. Donna I'm sorry!! I just checked the firefox browser on my husband's desktop (he has a dell) and I could see it. I have no idea what's going on! Hopefully all the kinks will be worked out by next week.

  19. Well, I dusted off my old Dell and checked Internet Explorer and can't see it there either. Isn't this weird?

    I'll try my husband's laptop. He's running Google Crome.

    In the meanwhile, if someone could link me up, I'd appreciate it. I worked hard on my post for this week. :)

  22. I went to linkytools.com and they said they were having a bit of problems. I had a linky tool on my own blog today and it went down for a while. But it ended up coming back up and I was able to participate. YAY!
