35

original shot, not too bad
very subtle effects added to gently boost colours and draw focus in to my face
Crazy fun with filters, eye, hair and lip enhancement (yes, I made my eyes blue.  Because I could)
Today is my birthday.  To celebrate I am sitting in my PJs playing with my premium subscription to the photo-editing site Picnik.  Yes, yes, all of you Photoshop wizards can scoff, but this is a really fun site.  Everything is really easy to use, so I can just relax and play without having to take a class first.

Tonight a babysitter is coming so I can stuff my face with sushi with some friends.  Tomorrow, I get to see Charlotte dance in the Arts Festival, and then chow down on a decadent chocolate cake made by the very talented Richard.

All in all, 35 is starting out to be a pretty good year.

Enjoy your special day!

And as far as the photo adjustments....I agree, sometimes it's the simple things that bring the most pleasure. Editing photos without a crash course on the site is NICE! :)
