Remember: You have 48 hours from the time of this post to complete a page for this challenge.

For this one, I'll keep it simple. We all have photos that are less than "professional" quality, right? Well, I want you to creatively edit your not-so-awesome photo(s) and make them shine on your layout! This can mean any number of things including but not limited to careful cropping, changing colors (ie - black/white, applying a vintage filter, resizing, etc).

See this thread for inspiration:
Bad Pictures..

many thanks to trish for this cutest of siggies!

I am probably the one of the worst picture takers ever. I just want to be able to point & shot really quickly before they move, or I miss whatever. I don't know anything about lighting, and I have TONS of pictures that are horrible because of it. The picture that I used for the back ground of this page, had a ton of light coming through the window. Looks great as a back ground though. Thanks!

Extra Point for 6 or more photos

Okay, well, I am just going to have to call this one, because I have been at this for HOURS now and I have reached the point of overediting the darn photo and making it worse. Blecch. Whatever. Here was the original photo:

Here's my layout:

Bonus points for: (1) more than six photos, and, (b) inspired by post #173 in the random fact thread.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
