Is Summer over yet!??

Its Hot..  I feel like I never go outsite anymore!  I like summer for a couple of weeks, then I cant wait for it to be over.. Its to hot to do anything..  Cant wait till it starts cooling off..  IN NOVEMBER~  Last year we had our last over 100 degrees day the beginning of Dec.. it was nuts. I am hoping it cools off sooner this year.
Time for some photo challenges :)

Three things I LOVE!

well.. cupcakes.. I Blame.. DC Cupcakes for my recent Cupcake addiction..

There is Turtle and his 1st Birthday cake,.. WoW how time flies!

A few days ago I saw this rainbow, it was BEAUTIFUL! It was the first real rainbow I have seen in over a Year!.. Since they dont last long,. I pulled over on the side of the road to take a picture.. by the time I got home.. 5 mins later, it was still there! I pulled into the garage, ran inside. told my son, and we ran out the front door to see it!... It was gone :(
He was so sad.. He ran all the way down the street to see if he could see it.

3... Photo challenges :)  Thank you to the sites that host them. for they challenge the creativity inside me :) 
& they lead me to others. and their creativity inspires me  :)

A few Challenges :)

I saw this picture of thought.. It needed more then just an edit..
He needed his own page! 

Here is the Original Photo.. :)

so here is my edit..  I really wanted to vintage/rustic look.. this sweet little boy looks like an old soul and I wanted that to reflect in the picture. I cropped, softened the edges, took down the color except red, brightened his eyes a bit. :)
