I❤Faces: Week 21



I usually give a back-story before revealing my pictures but this time around J said just forget it and post them (thank you, boy-genius). So, here I am, simply posting pictures. I feel like this entry is kind of naked without a story so feel free to check out my personal blog for more details about the Kids Entry...

Kids Entry



Pets Entry

Yesterday, J, C and I took an awesome Sunday stroll and stumbled across two hilarious scenes that would have made awesome entries for this week's pet category. Sadly, i didn't have my camera! ugh!

So, here is a picture of my first baby, Churchill. I just learned that you could do selective black and white with Picnik so it was fun to higlight his incredible eyes. He was adopted from a rescue shelter but we think Churchill is part Russian Blue/Korat. I❤Churchy!



I hope you'll head on over to I❤Faces and check out all the other fun birthday and pet entries (and they probably have very nice back stories to accompany them, unlike mine!)...maybe you should enter this week!

Is Your Cat Churchhill named after Winston Churchhill? My wife wanted to name our cat (sherlock) after J. Edger Hoover. We settled on Sherlock... He does have very cool eyes!

Both of these pictures are amazing! But I must say that the one of your cat is amazing. I'm going to have to check out Picnik now. Is the version that you used the free one or the one that you have to upgrade and pay for? I love the option of being able to do selective black and white.

I put up a photo too. Come on over.
