Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Photographer, I am not

Once again, I'm too busy to blog!! I'll just share these pictures for now. My co-worker/friend, Phyllis, asked me if I'd take her picture as a gift to her husband. I'm not a photographer, but I'm excited that she felt I could do good job. So here is Phyllis... She requested that her eyes be lavender. I can do that!! I use Picnik for photo editing. Check it out.
Isn't she beautiful?
