edit by me


**What the heck I did?**
Next time I need to write this down... but I'll try to remember..?
cropped*auto fixed*added a Polaroid preset*added sunaged preset, toned it down*matted the edges*
unsharp maked*watermarked*used a reflection frame...*for b&w edit used a tri- x 400 preset)

Yes. I used my beloved Picnik again for this edit.
I keep meaning to get into Elements, & get more comfortable w/ it.
My excuse WAS I wanted to use all the premium tools on Picnik, before it closes down...
But now w/ Pic Monkey, I haver no excuse!

Plus my lovely friend invited me to a great new online PS course.
No more excuses guys, I promise!

Picnik, I will always love you. 
 You were fun & easy (no pun intended)lol ...but it's time to grow up.
On to being a big girl!

I'm a sucker for b&w, so I had to add this little diddy.
