Lightbox {WW #24}

Ashley & Branson are doing Tutorial Tuesday and this week they are taking Rosie’s Lightbox tutorial and reviewing it.  This was my first try at it. I think it turned out pretty well.

Dustyn wanted me to take some photos of his trucks and cars. It was great practice and fun.

I still have to find some more lamps to add lighting to my box.

This was one of Kenny’s cars as a kid. I love the rusty feel.

Now for this week’s Edit Me photo! You can download the photo here, edit to your heart’s content, and then link up over on the challenge blog between Wed and Sat! This week’s guest judge is none other than the amazing Ashley Sisk. And the photo we have to edit this week is so adorable:
