Actions


So I have never used actions before in PS.  I have always just adjusted things the way I see fit.  I have to tell ya....I think I like actions!  It's so fast and then I can adjust the actions the way I like.  Best of both worlds.  BTW I never sharpen my images for the web like I should.  I just upload.  Maybe one day I will do it.   :)

 I am so excited about these new Girlee Halftees!  I don't think the long sleeve is up on their site yet but it should be soon.  Now Madison can enjoy all her new back-to-school shirts all winter. Boo. Winter is only a few months away.  I am a summer all year kind of gal!

Madison

I bought this little yellow suitcase from a thrift store a couple weeks ago for $4.00! I was so excited. I never find good stuff at the thrift store. Annnnnd the bonus is that the inside is super clean.

What To Wear For Your Spring Pictures by Guest Blogger "Hate it! Love it! Blog it!"



 Okay so I am so excited to have my first guest blogger!  It's my very own best friend from Hate it! Love it! Blog it!  She is so talented at putting outfits together.  If you are like me running around with your head cut off like a chicken trying to find the perfect outfits for your family this spring for pictures or even Easter outfits (because there will be pictures taken that day too) check out her advise before heading out to the store.
(You can totally click on the picture to enlarge it.)



Family pictures are all about coordinating without being TOO matchy matchy.  It used to be common to stick to a color scheme like grey and blue OR white and khaki.  Then everyone in the family would wear those colors with different patterns and sometimes have the kids wear the exact same shirts.  Times have changed!!!!   Embrace color!  If you notice the clothes I chose are ALL solids with the exception of one shirt.  By keeping patterns simple you can really play around with color.  The colors schemes in my design board are following the current trends this season.  These are constantly changing….pretty much every few months.  But THIS Spring tangerine and salmon colors are really in for the ladies.  Some other fun colors to play with are turquoise and mustard yellow.  And for boys jean shirts are coming back!  Be careful to match them with a nice pair of khakis rather than a similar color pair of jeans :)
Now for the breakdown of where I found all of these lovely outfits:
Dad-  Gap shirt, Gap vintage khakis, Abercrombie and Fitch leather flip flops
Mom (Option #1) Banana Republic cardigan, Gap wide leg jeans, nautical necklace from Urban Outfitters, just like honey ModCloth pumps
Mom (Option #2) White lace cami Abercrombie and Fitch, Banana Republic cardigan, ModCloth bridge club skirt, just like honey ModCloth pumps, nautical necklace from Urban Outfitters
8 yr old boy-Boys Gap Khaki, Old Navy button up, Gap leather flip flops, Old Navy leather belt
5 yr old boy-Boys Gap khaki, H&M boys button up (wish we had one of these in UT) Journeyskidz tween sanuk shoes
2 yr old girl- Gap purple shrug, Old Navy ruffle neck tank, Old Navy ruffle tiered skirt, Old Navy metallic silver sandals
You can find all of these stores and my other fave online shopping links on my Hate it! Love it! Blog it!  
Some trends to watch for THIS Spring: bell bottom pants, long cardigans, long chain necklaces, stripes, RUFFLES, and pockets (LOVE the pockets!!!!)  Have fun mixing things up for your family pictures.  I would love to see what you all end up going with!!! Email me at beckchilds@rusticoleather.com and maybe I will post your family pictures on my blog if you used my fashion advice :)

My Kids

I already posted these on my family blog but I thought I would post these here as well.  Just Because.
























Here are some of the outtakes.
















Just incase you didn't see the movie Tangled the kids are pulling their "smolder" look like the character Flynn.
