"Back to School" Photo Collage

iHeartFaces Week 35

School??? yuck.
haha, I'm jk. School actually isn't so bad this year.
Being a freshman is pretty cool (when the upperclassmen aren't making fun of me). =}

I didn't go to the same high school as the rest of my classmates, so that's probably the hardest part.
Being on the tennis team pretty much rocks. I'm the only freshman on varsity! XD

hmm... okay. Well this is the picture. I took it on the bus (obviously). It's one of my fave pictures. I love Molly in the very back, trying so hard to be in it. =)

iHeartFaces Week 33


I took this picture at the very beginning of the summer. It makes me feel nostalgic because school has started now. Seeing it brings back all my summer memories, and makes me wish I could go back in time and relive them.

(btw, I took this picture through one of the holes on a stop-sign pole) =}

go to!!!

iHeartFaces Week 32


You have NO IDEA how crazy this category made me.
I was 100% certain I wasn't going to enter something someone else would enter.
SO I tried to make my picture pretty original, lol.

I searched the house for something that you could call a "bubble".
Then my sister found this weird hair-tie.
It's an elastic that holds two little plastic spheres together.
AND inside one of the spheres was a bubble!!!!!

so here it is... drum roll please ;)

(that's Luke, the adorable neighbor boy... he looks so fascinated, lol)

iHeartFaces Week 30

What do I do during the summer?

This 14 year old girl has a life dominated by 5 hours of tennis a day.

But she finds time for some other things too. =)


Going on walks at night with cool kids and then randomly swinging.

Taking pictures of really dirty (but awesome) baseballs that sit in puddles.

Going to Cedar Point with the best friends a person could ask for.

(btw, this pic was taken with my cellphone, lol)

Drawing hearts with sparklers while being eaten alive by mosquitoes.

Taking pictures of adorable little twins with their "boyfriend".

Attending baseball games...

... and supporting Calvert's ballin' team. =)

Sleeping over at friends' houses after watching Pinocchio at the Ritz.

Being amazed by the gorgeous flowers grown by Dad.

AND sewing an extremely complicated dress that wins 2nd place at the Fair. =D

check out!

Fix-it Friday 21

I've never done a Fix-it Friday before, so don't get mad if this is horrible. =)



Okay... so I'm gonna try to make this sound easy?

First I used a healing brush to even out the skin.
Then I messed with the levels a little.
Then I cropped the image.
Then I expanded it on the left side and used the patch tool to fill it in.
Then I made a duplicate layer in b/w. (changed the opacity a lil)
Then I put in some text.

iHeartFaces Week 28


These are my feet. (No they are not normally that dirty, lol)

You can't see my right ankle in this picture, but it has caused me a LOT of problems in my life. I broke it on the first day of first grade, and wasn't allowed to go to the nurse. No one believed me so I had to live with it for a year. Finally, in the second grade I had an MRI, and a few weeks later had surgery. It was the scariest thing for an 8 year old! My ankle had been fine since then, but at the beginning of this summer I hurt it again while I was playing tennis. The doctor said no tennis for a month. That almost killed me because I'm going to try out for the tennis team at my new high school, and I'm hoping to be a freshman on varsity.
My ankle is well enough to play on now, but I have to wear a gross brace, hah.
So those are my feet... minus one ankle with a nasty scar.
(btw, I know... I have HUGE big toes)

go to!!
