sorry had no idea what to call this!
ok original

step 1 - ALWAYS when you plan to do major changes DUPLICATE your photo in case you mess up you still have the one you've done your basic editing to already.

step 2 - go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Black & White (PSE users - Duplicate your picture again then go to Enhance>Convert to Black and White)

step 3 - Adjust the Layers on your [CS] original [PSE] B&W copy so that picture has a high contrast

step 4 - Select your B&W, go to you blending modes, select screen and set the opacity to 80ish

step 5 - Set your foreground color to a dusty pink and your background color to a light yellow. Slect your original copy, then go to Layer>New Layer Adjustment>Gradient Map.

step 6 - Select the gradient map layer and set it's blending mode to Hard Light and the opacity to 75ish

And voila! You're all done! You can replace the gradient colors opacity and blending modes to suit your pictures and layouts.

As a finishing touch on mine I selected my original copy again then went to Filter>Render>Lens Flare and put it in the top corner of the picture and made it big enough so that the edge of the flare just touched Belly's head.
