My husband and I just got back from being in our friends’ wedding in Scottsdale. It was an awesome, long weekend and the wedding couldn’t have been more perfect for them. I smile thinking about it.

While walking around their neighborhood on day, I came across this bush with sweet little orange flowers. I must have spend 20 minutes taking different photos around it. This one is one of my favorites. The title is in honor of our friends.

…then cropped to square, used the Creamy Cyan photoshop action and added a slight texture over the top. Voila!

The tulips in the landscaping around the yard are looking pretty right now and probably have a few more days left in them before they start to fade for the year. As much as I like seeing them brightening up the exterior of the house, I couldn’t help but clip just one to brighten up the inside.

Naturally, I had to play with some textures over these images as well. I’m starting to wonder if I’m going a little too texture crazy. I’ve been trying the effect over everything lately. Below shows the original picture as well as the one with the texture. I’d love some input. Which do you like better?
