I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.   It was relatively nice here and spent some of the time out of doors.   I purchased tulips for the table for the family dinner on Sunday.   I received a lovely pink gloxinia from my husband’s uncle and a pot of miniature roses from one of my sons.   I have been taking pictures of them so they will be in future posts.   For this post I used the serendipity texture from Kim Klassen Cafe today.   My edit consisted of Nice and Easy action by Ashley Sisk, a high pass filter adjustment, two layers of the texture and finished with a Polaroid frame from Rimdecker.

Hi Val - wow, you are doing wonderful work with the textures! I'm really impressed. I think this is a perfect pairing with the tulips. Sometimes a texture just doesn't work with a certain photograph but this is terrific. Happy to stop by here again – I'm done traveling, at least for a few weeks! - g
